Size, kernel weight and unformity
Our confection sunflower hybrids are bred for exceptional plant health and the size, kernel weight and uniformity desired by processors. They are planted at a lower population in the field to grow longer more plump seeds. The largest of the seeds get sold to the in-shell market, like what you eat at baseball games, while the smaller seeds are utilized in the dehull market.
