Sunflower Seed - Game Cover
Sunflowers are one of the most popular game cover seed crops due to their ability to hold birds and provide a desirable supply of nutritious seeds. Sunflowers are most often sown in conjunction with other game cover seed crops, such as Maize or Kale. Sunflowers seeds are available as two types, standard and dwarf.
