TESTS ON SOME SUNFLOWER HYBRIDS WITH IMPROVED DRAUGHT AND EXTREME TEPERATURE RESISTANCE
In the paper, there are presented the results registered from the tests performed on the productivity of some sunflower hybrids, in the pedoclimatic conditions of the Research and Development Agricultural Station (S.C.D.A.) Şimnic â€“ Craiova. The main objective of the performed tests was to determine the sunflower hybrids` behavior in dry conditions. 49 hybrids were tested in 2016 - 2017 â€“ a dry year, when for the months of June and August there were no rainfalls registered. Although these dry conditions affected the yields, 6 hybrids within the tested range registered over 2000 kg/ha, closely followed by other 3 hybrids. The lowest registered yield was 976 kg/ha.
