The oil content of sunflower seeds and other crops is subject to strong variability which is observed not only between the varieties but between individual plants and families within the variety. A considerable influence on seed oiliness is exerted by the soil moisture, light, and temperature. A particularlypronounced variability was recorded in areas of insufficient moisture. In these conditions the most noticeable differences of seed oil content of individual varieties, was observed in sunflower and flax.
