Corn/Maize Success Story

We received this seed as part of our corn/maize project. With many heirloom varieties no longer being grown in Australia we felt there was a need to find varieties, get them grown out and re-distribute seeds amongst home gardeners to ensure they are easily available into the future. This Silvermine Maize seed was donated to us by one of our seed re-sellers from Mudgee. It has shown good traits with large cob & kernel size with good purity. We will select this variety further focusing on large cobs & 2 cobs per plant.  We will continue this project into the future and we are always on the lookout for unusual varieties or people willing to grow a crop for us.
