Safflower is member of the composite, family
Asteraceae. There are twenty five species in the genus.
Out of which only Carthamus tinctorius L. 2n = 24 is
cultivated and used for oil production, the rest are the
wild species. Safflower contains 30% oil in Indian
varieties. The oil constitutes 76 per cent of Linoleic acid
