1. disc ground late March

2. run scratcher do-all, while running the scratcher I will also be spraying 1.5 quarts per acre of "Treflan".

3. anytime around April 20th if soil temperature is 50 or higher at 8:00 am, I will be ready to plat.

4. Planting info: seed I am using is Syngenta 7111 HO/CL/DM, 61 day flowering, 89 days total to mature

seed spacing in theory is 1 seed every 5.5 inches on 38 inch rows
while planting I will be spraying out the back of the planter 4 ounces of Spartan, 1.5 quarts of Prowl and 2 ounces of insecticide per acre

5. once I have a stand of sunflower plants I will apply $50.00 of ammonia nitrate per acre, we never use fertilizer anymore

6. at the 6-8 leaf stage on sunflower plants I will apply 4 ounces of Beyond per acre.

7. sometime around 90 days from planting date I will spray all fields with Graxmone[42 ounces] and Direx[24 ounces] per acre.
this will kill anything in all fields that the other chemicals did not kill. this will also make the plants dry down faster

8. about 14 days before dove season opens I will bushog about 10% of every field, all that I mow is a strip around all fields and not over 2 strips through each field with a 10 foot wide bushog

8. starting September 1, hunt like "hello" every day

Chaneylake have you ever used the lightning ready sunflowers? We have used them the last 5 years they are expensive but work well for us. I may try your method this year on 1 of our fields. I have sprayed Spartan a time or two and it worked well also.

yes, I used lightning one time for spot spraying, it worked great

the main reason I listed the chemicals that I am using is because we are to many years in the same location without a chemical change

on a side note the Helena Chemical reps in my area are liking my plan real well and are wanting weekly pictures to study the results

this is a rather expensive plan but if it works it will make the chemical reps happy and maybe I will get a chemical perk for 2015

I found an 80 day maturity seed today, the name is NuSun, I do not remember the seed number, 80 days relative maturity, 44-48 inch plant height, the short height will handle winds better if we have a storm and the shorter plant is by far easier to spray over the top, google it spoon

I'd like to see some past pics if you have any. What type of tag-a-long sprayer set up do you use?

Do you have any suggestions for sunflowers that would grow the best in poor/rocky soil. I have a decent stand of clover there now. Thanks

most any sunflower variety will grow ok in weak soil, basically the only soil thats not good for them is low laying damp/wet type soil

the soil at my house is real weak and heavy clay type soil, yet the sunflowers here do better than average if I take care of them
