New Hybrids for 2016
Editor’s Note: The following listings provide brief descriptions of new sunflower hybrids available for planting in 2016 for the first time, or were available only in limited quantities in 2015. All these companies obviously have additional varieties on the market as well. Some sunflower seed suppliers indicated they will not be introducing any new hybrids for 2016, so those companies are not represented in this article. (Their names and websites are, however, listed at the end of the article.) For more information on any hybrids, new or previously available, 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 brevity and/or style consistency.
