MEASUREMENTS CONCERNING SOME YIELD ELEMENTS ON SUNFLOWER CULTIVARS IN THE CLIMATIC CONDITIONS OF 2016 AT S.C.D.A. SIMNIC
Within the frame of the ADER 1.1.3. project „Creation of sunflower hybrids with improved drought and extreme temperatures resistance” there were established two trials, involving lines and hybrids.
Most of the hybrids registered yields above 4.000 kg /ha, although the rainfall in the critical phases were very low, thus showing the drought tolerance of most of the studied hybrids. With respect to the registered yields of the studied lines, most of them were above 2.000 kg/ha. There are lines with registered yields above 3.000 kg/ha, with the maximum regitered yield of 3.790 kg/ha.
The physiological maturity – most of the studied hybrids reach earlier this stage compared to the other hybrids. Some of the studied lines reached their physiological maturity four days earlier.
