The article is devoted to studying of the effect of a growth regulators mixture of chlormequat chloride and
treptolem on the sunflower seeds quality indicators. The results of three years studies suggest that the reduction of protein
nitrogen content in seeds and the increase of phosphorus content has occurred due to processing of sunflower crops by means
of mixture of growth inhibitor with anti-gibberellin mechanism of action – chlormequat chloride and cytokinin stimulator
treptolem. Herewith the content of potassium by variants of experiment has not significantly changed. Such changes in
the contents of nutrition elements positively influence the process of oil accumulation and improve the quality of sunflower
meal. The content of reducing sugars, saccharose and starch in sunflower seeds for actions mixtures of retardant with the
stimulator was lower than in the control regardless of the weather conditions of vegetation.
We have found that mixture of multidirectional growth regulators has increased the oil content in sunflower seeds. Herewith
the quality of oil has depended substantially on weather conditions of vegetation. The mixture of preparations in hot and
droughty vegetation conditions in 2007 y. has led to increase the number of saponification, essential number, glycerine
content and has not changed the indicator of iodine number. The growth of oil unsaturation depends on sufficient water
supply and comfortable temperature conditions. We have investigated that the correlation of unsaturated higher fatty acids to saturated in drought conditions during the
action of the mixture of retardant and growth stimulator decreased compared with control and it has increased in optimal
The residual quantity of the growth regulators in seeds has not exceed the maximum permissible concentration.
