After gladioli, sunflowers are the most important crop for your field. By staggering sowing times, you can have flowers from July to October – and sometimes even into November. These tall sun lovers are a favourite of many customers, with pollen-free sunflower varieties (F1 hybrids) enjoying increasing popularity. These pollen-free hybrids are popular because they have an extended vase life and do not shed any pollen. The seeds should be sown in at least six batches. The later batches should be sown by the end of July. This allows the flowering season of your field to extend into late autumn. As a result, you will have happy, satisfied customers and a higher income over a longer period of time.
Nine years ago, we began the first cultivation trials of our resistant sunflowers. We test our own resistant sunflower varieties on our own trial field and we have made some forward-looking advances in the area of developing mildew-resistant variants.
Extend the season until late autumn!
