Re: Sonflower Harvest Pics

You wouldn't have to have some of the head or front you were using in the sunflowers??

Here are some pics of the heads we use. They are JD all crop headers. There are quite a few different types of headers used to combine sunflowers.

Thanks guys, for headacker these pics were taken in North Dakota about 70 miles south of the Canadian border. Yields were pretty good this year considering we had a hot and below normal precip for the year. They definitely tapped into the subsoil we had. The down side is they really deplete things for next years wheat crop. A reduction of about 10 bushel was common for this years wheat on flower ground. In wet years we see a yield increase due less disease pressure. Here are a few more pics of some harvest pics from this year.

Here I am cutting some yellow peas

Nice pictures. That N7 must be a good machine if your keeping her around? I hear sunflowers aren't that profitable of a crop? No one grows them here other then for bird feed.

Take care,

Nathan
