Abstract

From this series of studies it appears that sunflowers are well adapted (and needed) as a crop in the low desert valley areas. However, production with the varieties presently available is marginal-to-poor. Improvements in insect and disease resistance, coupled with benefits derived from use of hybrids, could make this a profitable crop for these areas in the near future.
