Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is grown as an oilseed crop worldwide in temperate and subtropical climates. Among oilseeds, sunflower generally ranks fifth behind soybeans, rapeseed, cottonseed, and peanuts, with an average annual world production of 21–27 million metric tons (Mt). Unlike soybean, sunflower is primarily an oil crop, with high protein meal being a by-product. Sunflower is grown on every continent, with Argentina, the former USSR, Eastern Europe, the European Union, and the United States being the largest producers.
Sunflowers grow in dry areas, so they are heavily influenced by environmental conditions. Sunflower yield increased drastically after hybrids entered production in the 1980s, but sunflower yield has changed little right up to today. Therefore, sunflower breeders should investigate this lack of heterosis by planning new plant designs utilizing both land races and wild species. Seed yield is mostly related to three main characters: plants per hectare, seeds per plant, and seed weight. Physiologically, these traits are mostly related to higher photosynthesis, nutrient uptake, and water use efficiency rate.
Sunflower oil is a non-comedogenic carrier oil which is highly absorbent and won’t clog pores. It’s non-irritating for most people, and can be used on all types of skin, including dry, normal, oily, and acne prone.
