Any sunflower growers?

Kicking around planting some sunflowers after wheat this year. Any tips, suggestions or ideas would be helpful. I'm in NW OK.

Re: Any sunflower growers?

We raise quite a few in NE north dakota, so I don't know how relevant our experience to OK.  We raise oils and almost exclusively pioneer N82.  They are express tolerant which makes a huge difference for us with a few difficult weeds.  If Spartan is labeled down there i would recomend that for pre-emerge, no incorporation required and excellent kochia and pigweed control.  We plant 25- 27000, any more and we get very small heads, in drier areas they go with a lower pop.  Good luck, they can be a major pain in the ass but usually pay well.
