SUNFLOWER SEED, OIL, OR SILAGE: NEW CROPS FOR CENTRAL OREGON William M. Murphy INTRODUCTION Central Oregons short growing season with its late spring and summer frosts limits the kinds of crops that can be grown.

A wider choice of Sunflower seed crops is needed to. Sunflower silage contains 10 to 12 percent crude protein compared to 8 to 9 percent commonly found in corn silage. In addi-tion to a higher crude protein content, sunflower silage made from oil seed varieties contains 10 to 12 percent fat compared to 2 to 3 percent fat in corn silage.

Silage made from non-oil seed sunflowers or low yielding File Size: 70KB. sunflower was for poultry silage. Inthe first processing of U.S.

sunflower seed into oil occurred in Missouri. Commercial production of sunflower grew quickly. Sunflower breeding and hybridization in the 70’s increased yield and oil quality as well as disease resistance.

The reports on cholesterol and human health increased the demand. Primarily grown for oil production and confectionary seed, sunflower has gained popularity in its role in production agriculture. Because sunflowers can grow quickly in summer months, opportunity exists to implement this species in a double cropping system, as a green manure, and as a forage or silage crop.

Ether extract of sunflower silage was times greater than that of corn silage. The fatty acid composition of sunflower silage was similar to the composition reported for sunflower seeds from oilseed varieties (13).

Morrison (10) reported sunflower silage made from giant Russian sunflowers averaged % ether by: Whole-plant sunflowers (oilseed) were chopped and stored as silage and compared to corn silage as the sole forage to 20 lactating Holsteins in a switch-back design of three 5-wk periods.

In the United States, cows fed sunflower silage (high-oil variety) in substitution for maize silage had a decreased milk production (by 8%) but milk fat was 12% higher (McGuffey et al., ).

Helianthus annuus, the common sunflower, is a large annual forb of the genus Helianthus grown as a crop for its edible oil and edible fruits. This sunflower species is also used as wild bird food, as livestock forage (as a meal or a silage plant), in some industrial applications, and as an ornamental in domestic gardens.

The plant was first domesticated in the Americas. Treatments comprised of no oil (control) or g/d of sunflower-seed oil (SO) or linseed oil (LO) supplements added to diets based on grass hay (H; experiment 1) or maize silage (M; experiment 2).

Milk fat content was enhanced (P. Harvest more oil per acre AgVenture sunflower seed is genetically engineered for exceptional yield and oil content performance. Choose from disease- and pest-tolerant hybrids featuring a wide range of traits. Sunflower hulls consist of the outer covering of sunflower seeds.

Hulls are a by‐product of oil sunflower processing and of non‐oil (confectionary) seeds dehulled for their kernels. Utilization of sunflower silage, sunflower hulls with poultry litter and sunflower hulls mixed with corn silage for growing dairy animals.

80). She also says that the skin can easily absorb and use this oil. Another bonus is that high-oleic sunflower seed oil has a. Sunflower seeds or screenings from drought- or frost-damaged crops may be lower in oil content.

Light test weight seed from an early frost or insect damage still can be used for feed. Screenings should be tested periodically for nutrient content because the feed quality of screenings can decrease significantly during the season (Anderson, ).

Sunflower produces large quantities of vegetable oil per acre, since oilseed-type seeds generally are 40 to 50 percent oil by weight. Yields can be more than 3, pounds per acre, although most Missouri soils are more likely to be in the 1, to 1, pounds-per-acre range, with up to 2, pounds per acre possible under good growing conditions.

Dairy animals that consume up to 50% of diet dry matter as silage or beef cows that consume only silage through the winter months would receive about kg (1 lb) of fat per day from corn silage and kg ( lb) from barley silage.

Figure 1. Intercropping corn with oilseed sunflower produces a high oil silage (Agassiz, British Columbia). Pollenless sunflower varieties planted in proximity to "regular" (bisexual) sunflowers are likely to be visited and pollinated to some extent by pollinators that have visited the regular flowers.

And, if left to mature on the stem rather than being cut, they will also be likely to produce some seed. ‘Containing aloe gel, safflower oil, and almond oil, this potion felt creamy and nourishing and removed dirt and oil.’ ‘Some excellent omega - 6-rich foods are borage, evening primrose oil, safflower oil, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, corn and pumpkin seeds.’ ‘Olive oil is a better choice than corn or safflower oil for cooking.’.

Crude fat content significantly correlated with protein content in sunflower seeds. Sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) has emerged as a very important crop in China due to the economic value of vegetable oil production. A 2‐yr field experiment was conducted in and to determine the effect of different N fertilizer application levels on.
