Oilseed Sunflower var. Daytona
8115 Oilseed Sunflower var. Daytona OG Helianthus annuus Short plant with medium maturity has improved root and stalk strength to resist lodging. Well adapted to northern climates, produces good yields with high oil content. Plant 1–1½" deep after soils have warmed to 50°. Young sunflowers require cultivation to establish well, but tall stalks and broad leaves make grown plants very competitive with most weeds.

Certified organic.

As food grain: Produces a good-quality amber-colored vegetable oil with a distinctive nutty flavor and high levels of polyunsaturated fats and vitamin E. Suitable for baking, in salads, and for low-temperature frying.

As feed grain: Sunflower seeds’ high oil content makes them a valuable source of energy; fairly high levels of protein as well, generally hovering around 20%. A valuable source of the limiting amino acid methionine in organic poultry diets, though it must first be milled to crack the hull. Fed to ruminants, sunflower seeds can reduce methane emissions and improve rumen bacterial activity. Less valuable as hog feed due to high levels of fiber and unsaturated oils.

Organic Seed

We are a MOFGA-certified organic repacker and handler of seed and feed.
All our seed is untreated.

Organically grown seed is labeled OG.
The label ECO after the variety name describes non-certified seed grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers on farms which maintain an active soil-building program. Some farmers eschew certification for a variety of reasons, ideological, economic and otherwise.
