  • For a good crop, it is necessary to have friable soil and proper amount of moisture in the soil.

  • Infestation of insects is less in Zayed season. Which directly affects the quality of crops.

  • In addition, a sufficient number of bees are also present in this season. Pollination by bees increases the yield.

  • Soak the seeds in water for 5 to 6 hours before sowing. This makes germination easier.

  • Sunflower flower is big. Due to its weight, there is a danger of falling of plants. In such a situation, to protect the plants from falling, add soil to a height of about 10 to 15 cm from the surface of the ground.

  • Harvest it after the flowers drop or after the back of the flower has turned yellow.

  • After harvesting, dry the flowers well in the shade. After this, remove the seeds by beating with a stick or by using sunflower thresher.

  • Not all the flowers shed at once or the back of all the flowers together is not yellow. So keep harvesting at intervals of few days.

  • After removing the seeds, dry them thoroughly. Store the seed when the moisture content is 8 to 10 percent.

  • Extract the oil from the seeds within 3 months. When the oil is removed for a long time, the oil starts getting bitter.
