60 day corn?

Postby Hugger Orange » Sat Aug 08, 2009 5:58 pm

I have been told that there is a hybrid corn seed that will mature in 60 days. Is this true and where can someone purchase it?

If it is out there, I have not seen it. My father works for Dupont (Pioneer) and my good friend works for Monsanot (Dekalb). I have seen 75 to 80 day corn. If this was out there it would be used all the time. All our crops were washed out along the rivers this year and we were not able to get any corn in. The state also had their corn flooded out, all over the state. No corn there either. Just millet, smart weed, duck grasses will develop in time.

There are some 60 day corns, at least that's their story. Have seen sweet corn and a native desert type talked about but never tried either. Do a search for it............have some major doubts on the day claims

That is correct. There are some 60 day sweet corn hybrids. Sorry, I was talking about ag corn.

Taken them in field corn and popcorn fields. Have seen them in a mowed over sweet corn field as well, not sure if the really know the difference.

doesnt matter. If there is food the birds will the there. He was asking about sweetcorn because it comes out really early (i think?). Or, because it will grow fast in an area which was wet and the corn had to go in late...

We mainly mainly golden harvest in Illinois and this year we had to plant a 90 day seed. Sweet corn will still work - defintely a shorter maturity too, just depends on when you can get your crop in and what you prefer.

The earliest hybrid I've found is a 72 day. And it's mainly for guys in North Dakota. I don't know if you have checked but seed corn is pretty damned expensive anymore and if you can even find this early of a hybrid from the local coop or your seed dealer I would doubt it.
