Research is paramount to the sunflower industry. Since its inception, the National Sunflower Association has committed itself to providing funds to researchers to stimulate new or continue with on-going research. Examples of this commitment and others are demonstrated through:
  • Hosting the annual NSA Research Forum
  • Awarding grants to researchers to carry out the NSA Research Committee's priorities
  • Hosting the Summer Seminar for information-sharing by leading industry experts
  • Assisting sunflower plant breeders in creating new sunflower hybrids
  • Creating an online searchable database of over 30 years of sunflower research papers
  • Supporting other initiatives found throughout the National Sunflower Association's website
