Constraints of Sunflower Production in India

Sunflower is an important oilseed crop grown in India, but its production faces several constraints that limit its potential for growth and profitability. This paper identifies and discusses some of the major constraints facing sunflower production in India, including the availability of suitable land, irrigation facilities, high-quality seeds, pest and diseases and post-harvest infrastructure. The paper also highlights various government initiatives and private sector investments aimed at addressing these constraints and promoting value addition in sunflower production. Collaborative efforts from various stakeholders, including government agencies, researchers, and farmers themselves, are necessary to overcome these constraints and improve sunflower productivity and profitability in India.
