Sunflower

Sunflower is the third most important oilseeds crop in India after Groundnut and Mustard. It is mostly grown by small land-holding farmers under rain-fed conditions. Unlike other crops in the country, sunflower acreage fluctuates widely due uncertain rain and fluctuating commodity prices.

Sunflower is grown for oil. Sunflower oil is mostly consumed in urban areas. Because many people consider it a healthy edible oil, it commands a premium price compared to other edible oils.

Proline in India is committed to developing and offering sunflower hybrids that add value to farmers in India.
