Silver King Dent Corn
Silver King Dent Corn is also know as Wisconsin No. 7 which is one of the reasons we chose it! It was the leading white-dent variety in the Northern part of the Corn Belt. Originally by A.J.Goddard of Ft. Atkinson, Iowa, who brought a bushel from Indiana to Fayette County, Iowa in 1862. Foundation stock was produced by the Wisconsin Experimental Station in 1904. Wide creamy white kernels on a white cob, with medium depth and thickness. Ears slowly taper from butt to tip, with slightly wavy rows. Slightly rough.
Planted on May 23 with a soil temperature of 68F.
