Product Description

Peredovik Black Sunflower Seeds One Pound
Black Peredovik Sunflowers are popular feed items with birds of every description. They tend to be tall growing and produce compact seedheads which can reach diameters in the inches on some varieties. Sunflowers can be grown with almost any wildlife foodplot and provide a high quality oil content seed needed for the healthy growth of all wildlife species. This is a particularly added benefit for the wildlife such as ducks, and other larger migrating fowl which expend large reservoirs of calorie energy during migration. Sunflower seeds nutrients help in healthy feather development for these birds.

Sunflowers are very site adaptive and will grow from 2 to 4+ feet high in almost any soil. They can be planted in rows or even broadcast in small or large acreage.

Black Peredovik Sunflowers are a better choice for wildlife food plots than the striped sunflowers - They are very popular as a food plot for migrating and domestic doves.
