Sunflowers are one of the most common crops grown in the world, and it is easy to see why. They are bright and cheerful and come in a vast range of colors. Before the sunflower seeds are harvested, the flowers are allowed to turn brown. And once the flowers are ready for harvesting, they are cut down, and a combine separates the seeds from the flower’s head. On the side of the combine, a container is where the seeds land. While the stem and leaves of the remaining plant are cut up and used as compost or animal feed. The seeds are then cleaned and dried before being prepared for packaging.


Most sunflowers germinate in late spring, once the ground is nice and warm. Sunflower seeds are produced worldwide, but here are some of the most vital producers: Russia, Ukraine, Argentina, the European Union, and many other countries.
