Is it too late to plant sunflower?
Don’t believe so

i've also read somewhere that the best time to plant sunflowers is in late spring when all danger of frost has gone.

First time planting a dove field. On the advice of this thread, went with sunflower, millet & sorghum. Sorghum was planted a couple of weeks later, due to weather. Everything seems to be going decent. I'll definitely plant earlier next year.

Your millet and sorghum timing is good. All weather depending

Sorghum is up. Sunflower appears to be at least in the 4 to 6 leaf phase & Millet is now well established. If we continue to get rain and the deer, hogs & turkeys stay out, we'll do ok for a first season field.

Lookin good here is some unasked for advise. From the back ground looks like the terrain is adequate for for nesting. Deer feeders with chicken scratch early on will get birds there and they can have 2 sets of offspring every summer. They love fresh turned dirt where the feed is. Just saying you can pull everyone's birds and grow your own that will come back every year. Don't wait on your crop you have planted to seed out to bring the birds have them there and reproducing. A planted field is for shooting time to keep the birds when you remove the feeders for the law lol.

Good advice ... This plot is on the only hill on a 650 acre piece of land. Row AG is located off property to the North and East of this field. I'll definitely look at getting a feeder set up.
Another thing that works early. Go buy bulk bird seed. Put it in your spreader and go spread it all over. Birds will begin hammering it. Or it will grow. Just make sure you stop before season so its all gone.
