This field of sunflowers exploded into full bloom last week near the intersection of Kanza Road and 220th Street. The 126-acre field is owned by Scully Estates, a large land-holding company with a regional office in Marion. Steve Bartel of Hillsboro, the custom farmer hired by Scully Estates, planted the field located near Marion Reservoir. Bartel said the seeds from this crop will likely be harvested in fall for bird seed.
