South Dakota Sunflowers
Aug 27, 2014
In 2013 South Dakota farmers planted 617,000 acres of sunflowers – more than any other state. And we grew just under half the sunflowers produced in the country at 996.8 million pounds. This year’s flowers are still blooming. Keith Hemmelman shared recent photos from fields near Pierre. See more of his work at http://hemmelman.zenfolio.com/.
