Black Seedy Bunches (Spots) on My Sunflower Stems and Blooms

I have an enormous amount of black seedy bunches of spots on the stems next to the leaves and heads of my sunflowers and even on the blooms themselves. I have sprayed insecticide and this hasn't stopped it. What could it be and what has caused it?
