SUNFLOWER IN MOROCCO
M. MEDOUAR and M. EL ASRI

SUMMARY
The edible oil deficit, in Morocco, is of the order of 80% of needs. The potential of the
oleaginous cultures is estimated 470000 ha. During the last ten campaigns, the average
surface of the oleaginous cultures amounts to 120000 ha / year. The sunflower is the principal
oleaginous culture in Morocco. The National Association of the Producers of Plant
Oleaginous and Textile aims at the defense of interest of the producers of oleaginous, to them
organize and to contribute to the development of oleaginous network. The purpose of the
Federation of the oilseeds is to contribute to the organization, the development, the promotion
and the integration of the oleaginous network. Research on the annual oilseeds are led by a
multi-field team of the INRA and the other institutions of research and Education in the zones
where they present a high potential of production. The programming of the research projects
is made according to a participative method. The development prospects of the oleaginous
cultures aim at a level of autosufficiency of the order of 40 % of needs.
