Economic Importance:

  • Gene sources: disease resistance for sunflower (based on resistance to downy mildew, fide Helia 32:67. 2009)
  • Gene sources: pest resistance for sunflower (based on the development of lines for resistance to Orobanche, fide Helia 32:69. 2009)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of sunflower (based on hybrid formation with H. annuus, fide Helia 32:69. 2009)
  • Materials: potential as lipids (due to high oil content, fide Econ Bot 45:6. 1991)
