Minnesota 13 Dent Corn
(Zea mays); aka MN 13; 87 day Dent
History: Rich Holman from Wisconsin was selecting for earliness and yield on this strain of Minnesota 13 Dent Corn. We plan to continue the same here in Michigan. It is written that this corn is desirable for making moonshine. Originally this open-pollinated dent corn was developed by the University of Minnesota in the 1880's. Because of the shorter growing season, it was commonly used in Stearns County. Our original seed came from Green Haven in New York.
Planted on May 23 with a soil temperature at 68F. Harvest began on August 28th.
