The Right Cropping System

Keep Rotation Top Of Mind

Rotation is essential for maximizing sunflower yield potential because it can help reduce disease, insect and weed pressure, guard against soil moisture depletion, and help control wild and volunteer sunflower. A three-year rotation is desirable.

WinField agronomists recommend rotating crops and herbicides to keep glyphosate as a viable weed-control solution. Adding sunflowers to a crop rotation can help manage and protect glyphosate use on corn and soybean acres.
