Sunflower Research Trials

Abstract: In 2009, the University of Vermont Extension Crops and Soils Team conducted several sunflower research projects. A number of agronomic topics were investigated including pest control strategies, nitrogen management, and variety selection. Many farmers are engaged in onfarm fuel production endeavors. In order for on-farm fuel production to be feasible farmers must be able to reliably produce a high yielding crop. Therefore the overall goal of this research is to develop best agronomic practices for sunflower production in New England. In 2009, sunflowers trials were conducted in Alburgh and Newbury, VT and Chazy, NY.
