Armor® Dove Pro 21
Interested in a sunflower food plot seed product that has high grain yield potential? Armor Dove Pro 21 is for you! When seeded at a lower population, this is a taller plant with large heads and is later maturing, which makes it excellent for attracting late birds and other wildlife. It performs well in good soil environments, has high stress tolerance for your tougher acres, and produces very good energy from higher oil content.
Seed Size: 3
Package Size: 10 lb bag (treated)

Armor Dove Pro seed products utilize the Clearfield® Production System trait, which is produced with conventional breeding for use with Beyond® herbicide to control post-emergent weeds.
This is a great option for no-till or minimum-till sunflower areas, or fields containing weeds that are hard to control with other herbicides.
- Burndown: Burndown with 22 oz Roundup PowerMAX® (0.77 acid equivalent glyphosate)/acre and disk prior to planting
- Pre-emerge at seeding: Burndown with 22 oz Roundup PowerMAX® (0.77 acid equivalent glyphosate)/acre after planting and prior to sunflower emergence
- Post-emerge: Apply 4 oz/acre Beyond® herbicide (Imazamox) when sunflowers reach 2-8 leaf stages – earlier in that window will provide better control than later
