Effect of growing season on yield and its components and oil quality of some Sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) genotypes.


Abstract: The present investigation was carried out to determine the effect of growing season on four sunflower genotypes (Sakha 53, Giza 102, L120 and L770) at Shandaweel agricultural research station, Agricultural Research Center, Egypt during the two years 2019 and 2020 for yield, its components and oil quality sown during winter and summer seasons. A randomized complete block design with 3 replications. The combined analysis showed that growing season had significant effect on genotypes for yield components and chemical properties. The highest each of content of oil (44.20%), total protein (21.33%) in seeds and the best oil quality recognized the highest proportion from unsaturated fatty acids (TMUF % and (TPUF%) with high oleic acid and linolenic acid, low proportion saturated fatty acids were in winter season. The summer season produced the highest 100-seed weight, yield/plant and seed yield/fed. The genotype L120 had the heaviest 100-seed weight (6.88 g) and yield/plant (48.15 g) and seed yield/fed (1223.90 kg) in summer season. Giza 102 recorded the highest proportion in TMUF % (18.16) and oleic acid% (17.10), L770 recorded the highest proportion in TPUF % (75.50) and Linoleic acid % (73.40). Correlation coefficients among various studied characters and seed yield/fed in sunflower genotypes across the environments demonstrated that seed yield (kg/fed) were positively associated and highly significantly with head diameter, 100-seed weight and seed yield/ plant and between oil percentage with 50% flowering and steam diameter across the seasons and years.
