Increase opportunities for sunflower premiums
It's all about your bottom line. That's why our sunflower hybrids are engineered to bring more pounds per acre. You have higher profit potential because processors pay premiums for the high oil content found in Mycogen® brand sunflower hybrids.
Gain from the largest and most advanced breeding program in the U.S. sunflower industry. You can count on our team of local experts to help move your farm forward.

"I planted five competitive varieties alongside Mycogen 8H288 sunflower hybrid, and nothing came close to the 45.6 percent oil content of Mycogen 8H288. It's a proven leader on my acres," says Clint "Boomer" Patterson of Bottineau, N.D.
