Sunflower hybrids with the best yield and disease resistance

 Sunflower hybrids with the best yield and disease resistance

Every year, domestic and foreign breeders bring to the world market more and more new sunflower hybrids that are more advanced than those already known. The potential of this herbaceous plant, important for the industry, has not yet been fully utilized, and scientists are focusing their efforts on breeding hybrids in which all the most important properties will be worthy of the highest evaluation.

Popular sunflower hybrids - well-known and new

Already on the market there are armored, broomrape-resistant, high-oil and low-bushy hybrids that are resistant to temperature fluctuations, to common sunflower diseases and to drought. Due to the shell layer, the seeds of sunflower hybrids are reliably protected from pests that previously caused enormous damage to the crop, destroying entire sunflower fields.

Due to the shell layer, the seeds of sunflower hybrids are reliably protected from pests

All varieties and hybrids of sunflower are subdivided according to the length of the growing season into:

  • Early ripening, the ripening period of which is from 80 to 90 days. Oil content and yield of early ripening hybrids are somewhat lower than those of other groups.
  • Early maturing, ripening within 100 days. Early sunflower hybrids are distinguished by high oil content (up to 55%) and productivity (up to 3 t / ha).
  • Mid-season, ripening up to 110 days. The oil content of mid-season hybrids varies from 49 to 54%, and the yield can be about 4 t / ha.

Among the many varieties and hybrids of sunflower presented on the seed market, the seeds of hybrids from such world producers as Pioneer, Limagrain, Syngenta, Euralis Semences are in special demand. Being engaged in the selection of hybrids of sunflower and other crops, these companies use the latest scientific advances in their activities and control all processes, which allows them to achieve the highest quality products. Below you will find a description of sunflower hybrids bred not only in these companies, but also in leading domestic and foreign institutes.

Sunflower hybrids Pioneer

One of the most cultivated in Europe is the PR63A90 sunflower hybrid, bred by the Pioneer company. Its advantages include good "coexistence" with the broomrape of the E race and with powdery mildew. An early ripe hybrid tolerates high temperatures and drought, the seeds contain at least 46% oil, and the plant's self-pollination is high. The yield of the hybrid is stable under any growing conditions. The sunflower basket and the seeds it contains are of medium size.

Sunflower hybrids Pioneer

Among the main advantages of the PR64A89 hybrid: high yield potential, resistance to lodging, high temperatures and drought, as well as the ability to grow in any territory and even in those regions where the soil is infected with a broomrape of the E. which reaches 50%.

Hybrid PR64A15, in addition to resistance to lodging, shedding, drought, high temperatures and broomrape of the E race, also has an increased self-pollination rate, due to which, in areas where there are few pollinating insects, it is possible to obtain remarkable yields. The basket of the hybrid is medium in size with good seed coverage, oil content is 50%.

Syngenta sunflower hybrids

In the early group of ripeness among the hybrids of the Syngenta selection in terms of yield, the Rocky sunflower hybrid is the leader. At the initial stages, it is distinguished by increased vigor of growth, high tolerance to phomopsis, and resistance to broomrape of races A-E. The disease incidence is below average. In addition, the hybrid is not prone to shedding and lodging. The strongly convex baskets, semi-turned downward, contain medium-sized seeds, broadly ovoid in shape.

Syngenta sunflower hybrids

Recently, a new hybrid of sunflower - Bosphorus went on sale. The breeders of the Syngenta company managed to achieve a yield exceeding the standard by one and a half centners per hectare. The maximum yield of the hybrid was recorded in 2011 and amounted to 23.3 c / ha. The advantages of the hybrid are uniform ripening and increased resistance to broomrape.

Tunka hybrid

Among the hybrids bred by the French company Limagren, the highly productive mid-early hybrid of the Tunka sunflower is especially popular. This hybrid is valued for its good resistance to broomrape A-E, drought, stress conditions, lodging and cold weather, as well as for its plasticity to the conditions and cultivation technologies. The yield is stable in all climatic conditions.

Jason hybrid

Resistance to shedding, lodging and thickening are the main advantages for which farmers value the Jason sunflower hybrid. In addition, the hybrid has a genetic resistance to fake powdery mildew and broomrape, and tolerance is noted to gray and white rot. Large, flattened baskets bloom evenly, gray-striped seeds ripen after 110 days. When over-grown, sunflowers hardly crumble.

Hybrid Forward

The early ripe hybrid bred abroad is characterized by excellent resistance to diseases such as phomopsis, basket and stem rot, powdery mildew, broomrape races A-e, phomosis, sclerotinia. The yield potential of the hybrid is 52 kg / ha, the crops are leveled, which makes harvesting easier. Hybrid Forward is resistant to drought and lodging, excellently absorbs moisture from the soil from a depth of more than two meters. Can be grown in all zones.


Green World

Consider the most acceptable early options for planting in the field and in the garden:

  1. Pioneer... Most likely, everyone has heard of the many varieties of this plant, since over the decades of cultivation in Russia, sunflower hybrids Pioneer acquired industrial importance. They are sown by many agricultural organizations, as they have a high oil content and are more expensive to sell. The main advantages of the plant are: a short growing season (103-108 days), powerful stems that do not break in the wind, low shedding of hats at the stage of biological ripeness. It is also worth noting the high yield, since with the right care conditions, you can get up to 45 c / ha. Oil content ranges from 46 to 49%, depending on growing and maturation conditions.
  2. Sunflower hybrid Bosphorus. It was bred to combat new varieties of the spinning top (race F), which in recent years have become a big problem in Russia, especially in regions where the air humidity is high in the first month of summer. Often, the pest ate up all the crops. Now the sunflower is 100% protected and is not a tasty morsel for a spinning top. The yield is not very large, but with an average level of care, it is possible to collect 25 c / ha. Plants are tall, up to 200 centimeters, have a thick, powerful stem and wide leaves. At the stage of the 5th pair of leaves, the soil is completely covered with a planting density of 8 pcs / meter. Thus, the sunflower is excellent weed control.

These were the best early maturing varieties. When sowing them, it is necessary to look at their predecessors, since early-ripening hybrids do not like depleted soil and grow poorly on it, in contrast to late-ripening varieties, which loyally perceive the lack of minerals. It is best to do a chemical analysis of the soil before sowing.

Sunflower classification

Sunflower is the main oilseed crop in our country. Ukraine is one of the largest sunflower producers and exporters in the world. Sunflower, as a versatile plant, is grown on almost all types of soil.

The sunflower family has over 100 species. Oilseed varieties are interesting for agricultural cultivation.

According to the degree of intensity, intensive and extensive types of sunflower are distinguished.

  • Intensive: maximize their potential in favorable soil and climatic conditions and adherence to agricultural technology.
  • Extensive: allow simplified technology, replacement of resource-intensive operations such as tillage, fertilization, etc. In some cases, this is justified, the profitability is sufficient

Sunflower classification depending on the growing season.

The period of full vegetation is the time period from the moment of germination to the economic ripeness of the plant. According to the duration of the ripening period, there are three types of sunflower:

  • Early ripe. The full growing season is 70 to 90 days. Oil content and yield of early maturing varieties and hybrids of sunflower are 48-52%.
  • Medium early. The full growing season is 108-112 days. Early sunflower hybrids are characterized by increased oil content (up to 55%) and yield up to 3 t / ha.
  • Mid-season. The full growing season is 110 to 116 days. The oil content of mid-season hybrids ranges from 49 to 54%, and the yield is about 4 t / ha.
  • Medium late. The full growing season is 116–120 days.

The productivity of a certain sunflower variety is related to the duration of the growing season - with a short ripening period, the yield of the variety will be lower. The oil content of late sunflower varieties is usually higher than that of their early counterparts. Weather conditions also affect the ripening period of sunflower, however, the difference in ripening time between varieties grown in the same climatic zone will be the same regardless of weather conditions.

According to the cultivation technology, hybrids can be conditionally divided into:

  • classic hybrids
  • Clearfield® hybrids
  • Expresssun® hybrids aka SUMO
  • hybrids resistant to the latest broomrape species
  • high oleic hybrids.

Classic hybrids are the benchmark for yield, manufacturability and high quality oilseeds.

Representatives of this group include both imported and domestic sunflower hybrids.

Syngenta can please with high yields and initial vigor of growth.

Limagrain is a leader in the genetic fight against broomrape.

The Ukrainian manufacturer is represented by: VNIS, Yug Agrolider, Agro-rhythm, Terra-Yug, KIV, Insem-Agro. Ukraine does not mean poor quality. Hybrids are resistant to common diseases, and in turn are 2 or even 3 times cheaper than eminent rivals.

Clearfield® hybrids are uniquely resistant to Euro-Lightning® herbicide, which kills a wide range of weeds using post-emergence treatments.

The combination of Euro-lightning® and a sunflower hybrid allows processing only once per vegetation period, effectively destroys problematic weeds and broomrape, and acts through roots and leaves.

The panacea for broomrape is represented by varieties:

Hybrids optimized for DuPont ™ Express® herbicide.

Plant protection products are being modernized according to production requirements. Sunflower hybrids must be resistant to them. I also call this technology SUMO.

Also, these hybrids are resistant to the Granstar Pro herbicide.

Hybrids resistant to new races of broomrape

The correct choice of a hybrid corresponding to the degree of infestation of a certain field makes it possible to effectively control the broomrape and, which is very important, to exclude the evolution of its races.

Syngenta's girbrides can withstand 5 races of the broomrape, Limagrain up to 7 races, Pioneer of 5 races, Ukrainian sowing mat also cope with 5 races of the broomrape Seed Trade Agro.

High oleic hybrids

This group of hybrids is widely used in Europe. Hybrids with high quality fatty oil occupy, for example, in France - up to 80% of the area. Syngenta has registered a new hybrid with a high content of oleic acid omega-9 (up to 91%) and vitamin E. It is a Colombi hybrid that has a genetic affinity to the well-known Sanai MP hybrid.

Sunflower harvesting

To save the crop from birds, a long gauze bag is pulled over the sunflower's cap. Long hanging edges will prevent birds from reaching the seeds. There are other ways to protect yourself.

On the 35-40th day after flowering, the process of oil accumulation is completed in sunflower seeds. There is evaporation of moisture from the achenes, they reach wax ripeness. The sunflower harvesting period begins when the inflorescence freezes in one position, tilting the basket with achenes to the east. At this time, the sunflower leaves dry out, changing color from green to dark brown. Shrunken, they hang on the same dark brown stem.

Sunflower baskets with achenes are left to dry on the stems if the weather is dry and sunny. Wet - carefully cut and laid out in the shade for additional drying. When there is a delay in harvesting, in order to reduce losses, the achenes are shaken out into a substituted bucket. Dry under a canopy. They must be winded from debris, put in paper bags or natural fabric bags and stored in a dry place. Some gardeners wash the seeds from dust and dirt before drying.
