Sunflower seeds

In Israel, it is customary to grow sunflowers with two methods: on irrigated and un-irrigated land; the difference in costs is not reflected in the actual working of the land, but rather in irrigation costs.  The sunflower is a summer crop and requires keeping the ground clean and free of weeds during the winter.
In many areas of the world, sunflowers are grown mainly for their oil:  in Eastern Europe, North and South America, South Africa, Australia, Spainand Turkey.  Today, the sunflower is the third largest oil crop in the world.
Most sunflower growing in Israelfocuses mainly on the types appropriate for shelling.  The most popular species of sunflowers for seeds are grown in the Mediterranean region – in Israel, Turkeyand Spain.
100 grams of shelled sunflower seeds will contain almost 23 grams of protein, impressive quantities of zinc, potassium, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, Vitamin E and Vitamin B.
The index for high quality of species is the length of the seed; all new species excel in a shell length of at least 22 mm.
