Fertilizing Sunflowers

Abstract: Adequate soil fertility is one of the requirements for profitable sunflower production. Nitrogen (N) is the most yield-limiting nutrient, unless there are high residual NO3 -N levels in the soil. Phosphorus (P) is the next most limiting nutrient. Levels of available potassium (K), sulfur (S), and micronutrients generally are sufficient for sunflower production in Colorado soils.
