New Farm Opportunity

Record #:
Sunflower seeds are offering North Carolina farmers with a new source of income and agricultural diversity. The mountain and Piedmont regions of the state are ideal for sunflower production, with lower yields seen in the Coastal Plain. Yields of 1500 to 2000 pounds of seed per acre are expected under average conditions, providing a major component for bird feed or their oil.
