Michigan Grown Staple Crop Seeds that Fit Your Plant-based Nutritional Goals

Corn


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.
