Sunflowers Taking Advantage Of The Heat

It's been a positive year so far for Manitoba's sunflower growers.
 
Ben Friesen with Scoular Canada says most of the crop is at the R1 stage.
 
"We did get them planted just a week or so later in some cases than we wanted, but sunflowers will catch up themselves, the same as what the corn is doing right now. They are growing fast right now. If we get the heat and the good weather coming along I think we're in pretty good shape."
 
Friesen says there was some wind damage earlier in the year along with some cutworm issues.
