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.
