Jim I was figuring 1500 to 2000 lbs an acre where I live in Eastern TN we are near the mountains so we usually get alot of rain, but next year will be my first year growing them to combine. How much poundage should I expect? I usually bush hog them to dove hunt. I am actually going to grow a couple acres more to make sure I have enough to fill the order. I am using hydrid sunflower seeds from seeds 2000. blazer to be exact. They are clearfield and will be growing them on 34" rows. With a seed rate of around 24,000 per acre. Skip why can't you grow them year after year like corn? I will probly just by a sealer and seal bags on my own just seeing if anyone had a better idea. Also what moisture should I be at on the flowers before I bag them in a sealed plastic bag?

I am west of you about 200 mi or so, or 90 miles west of Nashville. I have never weighed out an acre but guessing by combine bins or total yield, I would think 1500+ lb per acre is doable. We put down 15,15,15 fertilize at about 300 lb per acre.
Lot depends on the water. One of the other mentioned trouble getting stands , I never have that problem. We use ac planter set up on 15 in rows. We also use Clearfield seed.
