Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted during rabi 2015 and 2016 at farmers fields of Badami taluk of Bagalkote district and Koppal taluk and district. There were two soil types and two management levels were in Factorial randomized block design with 10 replications. Application of soil test based NPK with zinc and boron (BMP) to rabi sunflower significantly increased seed yield (1109 kg ha-1). The yield contributing characters of sunflower viz., number of filled, unfilled and total grain per capitulum were significantly influenced by the BMP. Growing of sunflower on black soil was performed better than red soils. Growing of rabi sunflower on black soils with BMP was found beneficial for all the yield attributing characters except number of unfilled grains per capitulum.
