Title: Soil Applications of Sunflower Meal As Potential Fertilizer Sources
Author: Deibert, E. J.; Lizotte, D.
Description: Once sunflower oil is extracted, a large volume of sunflower meal must be utilized effectively to make 'on the farm' processing feasible and cost effective. This meal can be used as a heat energy source, as a livestock and poultry feed rations or as a fertilizer material. As it contains a high portion of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, it is an excellent plant fertilizer. This paper presents a study that was conducted to evaluate sunflower meal as a potential fertilizer source for the major plant nutrients. the current dollar value in 1982 of sunflower meal as feed far exceeded the value of the nutrients. A 300% increase of the then current prices would make the use of sunflower meal for a soil additive more competitive. More field research would be needed to establish sunflower meal application over a wider range of soils if it is to become incorporated into common management practice.
