|This is not a common process in sunflower production. Suckers do occur on sunflower plants though not a common feature. In all cases when they occur they are removed. The importance of suckers can be seen from a management point of view as they make seed cleaning more laborious, otherwise their effect on sunflower plant is marginal.
