Michigan Grown Staple Crop Seeds that Fit Your Plant-based Nutritional Goals
Our corn plan has been evolving the last few years. Please see our Growing Corn In Michigan page for more information on our strategy as well as a collection of useful educational links.
My interest in the very short season corn has two elements:
1) Should there be a very late Spring frost (or endless wet cold days like 2019) short season seeds would be a recovery option to salvage the season.
2) The chance to find something to plant after the earlier wheat or more likely barley is harvested. I will investigate root crops as well. Currently, our fall grain plots sit mostly idle (except for sprawling squash!) after harvest.
