The water availability in soil is an important factor that influences the plant development. Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the initial development rate of the sunflower culture (Helianthus annuus L.) under different levels of water table depth. In this study 200 mm diameter lysimeters were allocated in three columns, each one containing 6 different depths: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 cm. The work was conducted in an experimental greenhouse at Universidade Estadual do Oeste do Paraná, in Cascavel’s city, from April to August of 2013. The parameters evaluated were: stem diameter and plant height, dry and fresh mass of the aerial part.
