Now is the time for sunflower producers to order the “Sunflower Production” guide.

With spring just around the corner, now is the time for sunflower producers to order the “Sunflower Production” guide. The guide is full of useful information that will help producers become more efficient and profitable.

  • Hybrid selection and production practices
  • Pest management
  • Hail injury
  • Herbicide drift and chemical residue
  • Harvesting
  • Drying and storage
  • Feeding value of sunflower products in beef cattle diets
  • U.S. grades and standards
