S.W. North Dakota Sunflower Producer Dusty Laufer Had a Life-Changing Experience Last Spring; But It Has Not Hampered His Passion for Farming  

Editor’s Note:  The following listings provide brief descriptions of new sunflower hybrids available for planting in 2019.  All the companies listed in this article obviously have other varieties on the market as well.        Some sunflower seed suppliers indicated they will not be introducing any new hybrids for 2019, or had not responded to our inquiries as of when this article went to press; so those companies are not represented in these listings.  (Their names and websites are, however, noted at the end of the article.)  For more information on any hybrids, new or previously introduced to the market, visit company websites or contact your local sales representative.        Individual hybrid information was provided by the respective seed companies.  The Sunflower has edited some listings for length and/or style consistency.

Dangerous fugitives have been spotted stealing yield during harvest. Take note of locations and prepare to apprehend in 2019.
