In addition to great agronomic performance Nuseed conoils have excellent market versatility, often offering multiple marketing opportunities including dehull or kernel, oil, confection, or bird food, depending on processor requirements. This seed type is generally higher in oil content than confection seeds and realizes greater yields.
The dehull market requires processors to mechanically remove the hull and separate the kernel to be sold as a raw ingredient, or roasted for snacking. The shell of these sunflower seeds (conoil is a cross between confection and oilseeds) is the easiest to separate.
