Black oil sunflowers are great to feed birds or harvest for oil. They also work well in cover crop cocktails or in forage mixtures. Sunflowers can produce a fibrous tap root of 5 to 7 feet and can be fairly drought tolerant. Very good Nitrogen scavenger. Sunflowers attract a lot of beneficial insects.
Recommended seeding rate is 5 to 10 lbs. per acre, drilled 1-2″ deep in 30″ rows planted North to South for best yields. Plant April through August depending on location in a weed free bed.
Available in a 50 lb. bag.
