Why is it important?

In Brazil, sunflower plays as multifacetal vegetable, promoting many benefits to the consumers, as it also can be used to others oil industries like bioenergy sector. Somehow, there are some parts of these plants that are not so well used in those industries that are very important to animal nutrition sector. This article shows some ways to provides lower costs to feed animals and some plus profits to those industries.


Our objective was testing the manure effect on the sunflower products to validate this use as an organic fertilizer to reduce the cost of nitrogen fertilzation and the N-component plaint gain for feed animals reducing costs for nitrogen increment.
