Abstract

The performance of six sunflower hybrids i.e 6435, 6470, 6451, SF-177, SF-187 and Hysun-33 was observed during the autumn season 1997. The results revealed that Hysun-33 gave maximum plant height (131.1 cm) and number of leaves per plant (31.23). The maximum number of rows per head (60.62) were recorded in SF-177 while significantly more number of seeds per row (24.54), 1000-seeds weight (53.53) and grain yield (4403 kg ha–1) was observed in SF-187. Hence SF-187 proved to be the best suited cultivar among all the cultivars included in this trial.
