Sunflower is celebrated for their robust and extensive root systems, a characteristic that allows them to absorb residual nutrients that are typically inaccessible to many other commonly cultivated crops. This unique trait makes sunflowers highly valuable in green manure mixes, enriching the soil with these otherwise untapped nutrients.
Apart from their nutrient-absorbing prowess, Sunflowers are known for their rapid growth, versatility, enabling substantial biomass production within a short growing season and high protein content.
Another significant advantage of sunflowers lies in their ability to attract beneficial insects, especially bees, making them ideal for pollination support. This natural appeal to pollinators aids in fostering biodiversity and promoting healthier ecosystems.
