In this paper we present the values of several quantitative characteristics on sunflower, VNIIMK 8931 variety, in the region of Ovce Pole. This variety has tradition for growing in Macedonia with possibility to grow in the future. Her adaptability to the climatic conditions of the region shows very stable parameters of the examination capacities. The average height of the plants was between 204.0 cm in 2000, 208.0 and 209.0 cm in 2001 and 2002. The diameter of the head (norescence) for the period of three years was 19.7 cm and absolute weight of the seed 87.7 g. All three characteristics didn't show any statistica l differences. The statistical Significant differences we obtain only in the case of yield of seed per head (fiorescence): 120.0 g in 2002,I 17.0 g in 200 I and 98.0 g in 2000. The percentage of oil keep the average for the sunflower as an indust!ial oil crops: 44,5% in the first,47,9% in the second and 43,1 % in the third year of investigation
