       Editor’s Note:  Many sunflower producers utilize row-crop combine heads.  Numerous others opt for a harvest attachment specifically designed for sunflower.  Still others employ special conversion kits for fitting to their corn head.        These pages introduce several attachments and conversion kits available on today’s market.  The information has been provided by the respective companies and then edited for use in The Sunflower.        Contact details are included for those growers who wish to further investigate a given company’s products.
