  • No More Padded Bras. I'm 33 and ever since I was in my late teens, I have been wearing padded bras to make my breasts look bigger. I've been trying to get my breasts to grow for years but I've never ben able to find a solution that works. I tried your book with little hope, but was extremely surprised to find I was getting results just 2 weeks after using your techniques. After 1 month, I managed to get rid of my padded bras and I now I'm loving the new underwear I treat myself to! ➜➜➜ https://t.cn/A6Li7dmy

  8. 8. Sunflower Growth cycle The first few leaves are opposite each other. As more leaves develop, the leaves are arranged in an alternating pattern up the stem Emergence of 2 to 3 leaves per week. Alternate leaf arrangement after initially starting as an opposite arrangement. Germination & Emergence Bud formation Seed coat & Hypocotyl arche Sunflower Head Development initiation 12/19/2013 8
  9. 9. Agronomic Practices Climatic Condition : Require hot and humid weather with the relative humidity of 50 – 85%.Sunflower can be grown in dry areas too. Soil Type Sunflower can be grown in sandy loams, black soils and alluvial. pH range : 5.7 – 8 Sunflower performs well in well drained, fertile soils with good moisture holding capacity Land Preparation Deep ploughing up to 12’’ – 18’’ followed by 2-3 harrowing & planking, collect the stubbles of previous crop and prepare clean seedbed. Mixed 3-4 tonn FYM/acre in to the soil at the time of last harrowing. Crop Rotation 2 or 3 seasons/years crop rotation with traditional crops (cereals/pulses/millets) will improve soil fertility. Legume or groundnut crops are the best for rotation. Sunflower should not be followed after mustard, beans, peas (as they act as hosts for diseases) 12/19/2013 9
  10. 10. Sowing Sowing Time Early sowing : Mid Dec- Mid Jan Late Sowing : Jan Last week to Feb Last week Sowing Distance : Spacing 60 cm x 30 cm Method of Sowing : Dibbling method with furrow sowing Seed Rate : 2-3 Kg /acre Seed Treatment : Seeds should be treated with captan or ceresan @ 3 g/kg seed under dry land conditions Thinning : Remove unhealthy & and vigorous seedling in each hole on 10th day of sowing. Keep healthy one. Fertilizer Management : 12/19/2013 10
  11. 11. Fertilizer & Irrigation Management •FYM or Compost 3-4 ton/acre prior to sowing •Basal dose kg/acre- DAP – 75 + MOP-25 •Top dressing kg/acre or SSP-200 + MOP-25 + Urea 20 kg 1st Top Dressing: Urea-40 + MOP-25 (25 DAS) ; 2nd Top Dressing: Urea-40 (40 DAS). (Follow need based application of Sulphur and Boron which are vital for seed wt. and flower opening) Critical stage for Irrigation Button stage : 35 to 50 DAS Flowering : 55 to 65 DAS Grain Filling stage : 70 to 85 DAS Black soil: 3-4 irrigations (12-15 days interval) Red Loamy: Kharif: 5-6 irrigations (8-9 days interval) Summer 8-9 irrigations (7-8 days interval) 12/19/2013 Agrocel Industries Ltd( Agri Service Division) 11

  13. 13. Harvesting •Sunflower attain its physiological maturity in 100-120 Days •Harvesting should be done when the back of the head turns from green to lemon yellow colour and the bottom leaves start drying and withering •At the physiological maturity, the seed attains maximum weight and oil concentration and harvesting at this stage, results in highest seed and oil yield. •10 percent of heads should turn brown and florets attached to the seed drop naturally. •Delay in harvesting cause reduction in seed yield due to lodging of plants and more damage due to birds, rodents and termites attack. •Harvesting should be done by adopting proper method. • Mechanical thresher should be used to separate seeds from flower which is labour saving and economical. •Avoid harvesting during adverse weather condition i.e. rain and overcast weather. 12/19/2013 Agrocel Industries Ltd( Agri Service Division) 13
  14. 14. Some facts about Sunflower Sunflower is very sensitive to wind damage in the seedling stage and for this reason, cultivation on light-textured soils susceptible to wind erosion, should be avoided unless wind erosion is being combated successfully. Sunflower is very sensitive to water logging. Sunflower is very sensitive to high aluminium levels and should not be planted in soils with a pH lower than 4.6. The sunflower plant has a deep and finely branched tap-root system which can utilise water from deep soil layers, even deeper than 2 m. Consequently, the crop often performs well even during a dry season, especially in deeper soils or in soils with a high water-table. 12/19/2013 14
  15. 15. Important tips to be remember Avoid extremely high temperatures during planting time, as well as the possibility of frost damage. Compared to grain crops, sunflower utilises soil nutrients exceptionally well. The main reason for this is the finely branched and extensive root system. The roots come into contact with nutrients which cannot be utilised by other crops. Young plants are very sensitive to strong weed competition and cannot develop fast enough to form a full shade covering which can suppress weed seedlings. Therefore, the first six weeks after planting are a critical period for the crop. Yield can be increased significantly by keeping fields free of weeds during this time. Harvesting should commence as soon as 80 % of the sunflower heads are brown in order to minimise losses caused by birds, lodging and shattering. Sulphur and boron application are vital for seed wt. and flower opening 12/19/2013 15
