Sunflower Harvesting Machine – How to harvest and processing sunflower seeds ?

Harvesting Sunflowers
We harvest sunflowers with a combine (harvester) equipped with a special sunflower header. Modified lifters that attach to the snouts have been installed on this header. As you can see in the photo below, this helps to pick up any sunflowers that have fallen down as well as guide them into the header. You can also harvest flowers with a pin header or an all-crop header. The sunflowers are transferred from the combine to a grain cart, which transports them to the end of the field, where they are loaded into a semi, as is the case with all harvests on our farm. The sunflower seeds will be transported to a bin on our farm, where they will be stored until they are sent to the birdseed market or crushed for oil.

Pre-harvest Application
We can use glyphosate in a pre-harvest application on our sunflowers, just like we do with wheat, as a post-harvest weed control labeled use. The added benefit is that glyphosate works the same way on our sunflowers as it does on weeds, resulting in a faster plant dry-down and harvest. This pre-harvest application is required for sunflowers “when the backsides of sunflower heads are yellow and seed moisture content is less than 35 percent,” according to the label. Sunflowers have a maximum labeled rate of 22 ounces per acre (43,560 square feet), with a minimum of seven days between application and harvest. This is usually done with the help of an aerial applicator.
