Golden Opportunities with Nuseed Sunflowers
With five market classes, there are many marketing options for this bright crop. While they are generalized into two larger categories – oilseed and non-oilseed – their end uses are far more varied. With healthy oil properties, contract production opportunities, and the adaptability of sunflowers to varied climatic conditions, whether you grow for oil, birdseed, dehull, or confection, there is a Nuseed hybrid right for your farm that will meet your marketing needs.
A leader in sunflower genetics, Nuseed’s sunflower genetics are developed with a strict quality assurance program and trialed under regional disease and insect pressures in key growing areas in the United States. Sunflowers are a non-GMO crop because herbicide tolerance has been established through years of selective breeding. Nuseed has introgressed the Clearfield®, Clearfield® Plus and ExpressSun® herbicide traits and downy mildew resistant traits into a number of hybrids to help you manage weeds and disease pressure on your farm.
