The Common sunflower is a plant from which we obtain Sunflower oil and seeds.

The Sunflower is native to Central America but is now grown, mostly for its oilseeds, in many semi-arid regions of the world from Argentina to Canada and from central Africa into the Soviet Union. The leaves are usually used as fodder, and may be grown for this purpose alone, particularly where the season is too short and cool for maize.

Sunflower pollen is a cause of asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis, and is an important occupational allergen in areas where Sunflower is grown. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
