National Sunflower Association Executive Director John Sandbakken says sunflower harvest is winding down nationwide. “Producers are very happy with the crop and looking forward to next spring,” Sandbakken told RRFN. “Many farmers that didn’t plant sunflowers are kicking themselves and are wanting to plant next year. Availability of seed doesn’t seem to be an issue, but, book it as soon as possible if there is a specific variety that you have in mind.” Sunflower prices are $35 per hundredweight and higher. New crop prices are also out, which is earlier out than normal.
