Abstract
Agronomic performances of some sunflower cultivars were tested in a total af 24 plantings at some locations in south-western Nigeria between 1965 and 1967. The row-width adopted was 60 em with four plant spacing of 22, 30, 38 and 46 cm. Sunflower production should preferably be restricted to the savanna rather than the forest zone. Sunflower performed better during the early season in savanna than in the forest zone even in late season, best yields being 1,401 and 1,228 kg/respectively. Variation [n spacing had no effect on seed yields though efficiency of seed production was greatly influenced by season.
