Sunflowers can turn around areas with high saline content

If you are dealing with fields that have areas of high saline content planting sunflowers can help turn those areas around. Sunflower is a saline-tolerant crop, meaning if it’s planted in a field with a large seep, sunflower would do better than other crops and helps the soil structure due to its deep root system. Those deep roots help get the water out of the soil at a deeper level and removes saline areas in the field. Producers should check with their seed dealers and find out which varieties are the most salt tolerant and appropriate for their growing area. For more information, visit
