Sunflower is a day-neutral, short duration, drought, and salinity tolerant potential oilseed crop in the world. Although it is an important source of vegetable oil for human consumption, its production is not satisfactory worldwide due to declining soil fertility and poor Nutrient management practices over the years. To enhance the productivity of sunflower and soil fertility status, several research attempts have been made on fertility management. Recent studies have depicted that the balanced and integrated use of organic and inorganic fertilizers resulted in a significant increase in vegetative growth and Yield parameters of sunflower along with improvement in seed oil content and protein content. Along with breeding for improved nutrient conditions adoption of INM is also a sound methodology for those who are resource-poor farmers. Thus, this review addresses the various Integrated nutrient management practices that be the best strategy for the sustainable and optimum production of sunflowers.
