The department of sunflower was established in 2014 due to the merging of the previously existing departments to improve the development of both the biological basis of sunflower breeding for yield, immunity and product quality, and the practical development of competitive sunflower varieties and hybrids of current directions of breeding.
The department consists of five laboratories: two breeding laboratories (the laboratory of sunflower OP varieties breeding and the laboratory of hybrid sunflower breeding) and three theoretical laboratories (the laboratory of immunity and molecular labeling, the laboratory of genetics and the laboratory of biochemistry).
