Peredovic Sunflower aka Peredovik Black Sunflower are a warm season annual. They form black heads 2-5 feet tall and are high in oil content. They have strong taproots with spreading branch roots.

Use Peredovic sunflower as a Cover Crop. They can produce large quantities of biomass, contribute to soil health and promote pollinators. Be aware that they become woody early in maturity, and can only be used as forage for a short time. They are best used to draw in birds and other pollinators to the field.
