More Sunflower Acres in 2015?

With many acres still uncommitted for 2015, sunflowers may be a good choice. Nuseed Americas Canada business manager Fred Parnow says sunflowers are holding their value. “The price and contract level right now is fairly good. The sunflower price has stayed fairly steady the past five years compared to other commodities. Guys are looking at sunflower stronger this year, so there’ll be a few more acres than there’s been in the past.” Reflecting on his territory north of the border, Parnow anticipates an increase in confection sunflower production.
