SUNFLOWER TE TS IN THE GAINESVILLE AREA--YIELDS AND OIL CONTENTS1/

Sunflower cultivars have been improved for four general uses; oil, bird

,silage, and confection (hulled and unhulled). Tests at Gainesville have

conducted only with sunflower for oil. As incomes rise, so does the use

getable oils. As the use of synthetic fibers increases, the use of cotton de-

es, causing a scarci-ty of cottonseed for oil. There is a concerted effort
le USA at this time to increase the supply of sunflower seed for oil to

9 the cottonseed presses in operation the entire year. Sunflower is an
in
lent choice of oilcrop for the South because its seeds contain 50% oil of

About 90% is poly-unsaturated, making it one of the most healthful oils

world. Sunflower oil produced in the southern USA is less poly-
,.urated than that grown in the northern USA.

Sunflower should be a good crop in multiple cropping systems for north and

:st Florida. It is resistant to frost and yields well when planted in the first

alf of February. Before his retirement, Or. G.BKillinger grew sunflower crops

in the early 1970s. His early February tests made higher yields using Russian

open-pollinated varieties than our tests with hybrids planted in March or April,

or even later, as summer weather approached. Tests planted in March-and April
annually at Jayiln west Florida with both open-pollinated varieties and

'brids have always yielded less than Killinger's early February tests with the

sian releases. See Table 1.

In 1976, a 14-entry test was made in cooperation with the National Cotton-

seed Producers Association. See Table 2. Peredovik 66 and Sputnik 71 are

Russian open-pollinated varieties, the remainder are USA hybrids. Details of

the test are in the footnotes of Table 2. Average data are as follows: 63 inch

plants varying from 46-66 inches; June 18 flowering date, with extremes of June

16 and 21; 1140 Ibs/A yield varying from 870-1470; total oil content of from

44.0 to 51.3%, averaging 47.7%, 7.6% or polysaturated (undesirable) fatty acids

palmiticc and stearic) but 91.4% poly-unsaturated (desirable) fatty acids oleicc

and linoleic). This totals 99% due to rounding. This composition makes the

oil very desirable in the diet of cardiac and vascular disease patients and

those persons who do not desire to become such.

Table 3 shows the results of the 1976 National Sunflower Performance Trials.

Average yields per acre are shown for the western, northern, and southern areas.

The yields for the southern and northern areas were essentially the same for the

10 hybrids and the 2 open-pollinated varieties, at about 1700 Ibs/A. The west-

ern area averaged about 2500 Ibs/A for all entries in the 1976 tests. The

entries were also ranked for yields under irrigation and nonirrigation. Inter-

state 891 yielded best when not irrigated, nationwide, as well as in north

Florida. It ranked number 2 when irrigated.

On February 18, 1977 a test was seeded with 11 hybrids and 2 open-pollinated

varieties. Table 4 shows the agronomic characteristics and Table 5 shows the

industrial characteristics of this irrigated field trial. Footnotes to these

tables outline the log of the test, key dates, and operations such as irrigations,

fertilizations, and sprayings, as well as planting and harvest dates. First

flowering was recorded from April 19 to May 5, averaging April 28. Full flower dates

'were recorded as occurring from April 29 to May 18, averaging

May 9; plant heights of from 50 to 78 inches, averaging 69 inches tall; yields

per acre of from 1230 to 2730, averaging about one ton per acre; with test

weights of 29 to 34 pounds per bushel, averaging 31 Ibs/bu. See Table 4.







Table 5 shows the total oil content of the 11 hybrids and 2 open-pollinated

varieties as well as the fatty acid composition of the oil and oil production

per acre. Standard deviations of each parameter were calculated. This table

shows the real value of a sunflower crop. Note that the total oil content of

13 entries averaged 48.3% oil, with extremes of 45.8 and 51.1%. Over 90% of

this oil is poly-unsaturatedw.which should place it in demand in both the local

and export markets. Only about 9% of the total oil is saturated. Oil

production per acre averaged 960 pounds, with extremes of from 560 and 1320

pounds per acre. See Table 5.

Because a number of Alachua County farmers were going to plant sunflower

following drought killed corn in July and August of 1977 we also planted

a test on August 18, 1977. The same 13 entries of the February planting were

tested. Footnotes to Table 6 show the log, important dates and practices of

the test. This test followed tobacco and nematodes were a great problem. At

harvest, there was hardly any root system on many of the plants. There were

great reductions from the February planting in plant heights (30-55", averaging

40); head diameters (1.5-3.7", averaging 2.5); number of heads per 10-foot row

(3-20, averaging 15); and yields (180-720, averaging 500 pounds per acre) in

this test. Yields would probably have been higher had pesticides and irrigation

water been applied. Farmers in the area made 800-2300 pounds per acre which

so Idat $0.08/1b. Most of the farmers planted Golden Harvest hybrids from the
Columbiana Seed Company.

Table 7 is the information sheet that accompanied the seed for the National

Sunflower Performance Trials and was drawn up by Dr. Dalton E. Gandy of the

National Cottonseed Producers Association of Memphis, Tenn. Useful information

in this table includes the hybrid names and sources, number of seeds per pound,

the seed size index, and the planter plate guide for three manufacturers plates.
