The sunflower crop has just finished blooming across most of North Dakota. National Sunflower Association Executive Director John Sandbakken says the sunflower crop is drying down. “The crop has really advanced to that dry petal stage and into that R7 stage.

Even with the late start to the year, Sandbakken is happy with the state of the crop.
