Fields of Yellow

Sunflowers have been enhancing the Itawamba County landscape recently with rich hues of yellow. Holley Farms planted 125 acres of sunflowers this summer and the crops are currently blooming. The above scene is of the Tilden field south of Fulton west of Highway 25 South. Other fields of sunflowers belonging to Holley Farms are along Highway 23 north of Tremont and along old Highway 78 east of Tremont. The sunflower seed will be used for bio-fuel and sunflower oil.
