- The optimal planting rate for sunflowers is less than most people would expect. Three to five pounds of seed per acre planted on 30-to 40-inch row widths (one to two plants per foot within a row) should yield a final crop of 18,000 to 26,000 sunflower plants per acre. This planting rate should result in a good crop seed yield and provide adequate leaf canopy to aid in weed control. This planting information was taken from the publication "Growing and Managing Sunflowers for Dove Fields in the Southeast".
