      Sunflower

      Sunflowers have a robust root system enabling them to scavenge nutrients and are also good for mycorrhizal fungi growth in the soil.

      Sunflower seed is best sown early after harvest, with these plants developing a deep taproot which helps them penetrate layers within the soil and alleviate compaction. The sunflower produces a beautiful flower, attracting pollinators and supporting biodiversity.

      ACRES requirements

      • For ACRES, a mixture of at least two crops from the prescribed list must be sown.
      • Sunflower cover crops must remain in situ until after 1 January.
