It is a plant that can reach 4 m in height in the best growing conditions.

The stem is hard, fibrous, covered with rough hairs.

It is a plant of high economic importance whose agricultural industry produces from the seed a famous oil.

It is a plant domesticated by the Native Americans of North America and Mexico.

The amount of oil in the seeds can be up to 50% for the best cultivars.

The sunflower is the symbol of Ukraine, which is the world's leading producer ahead of Russia and Argentina.

Sunflower is also grown to make "green" fuels, so quality agricultural land is used to produce a fuel (diesther) instead of being used for human or animal food.
