Sweet Corn

Gallatin Valley Seed is working with Seneca Vegetable Research, Inc. to develop processing type sweet corn varieties. We have been screening lines for 3 seasons and are starting to find products that will husk, cut and recover well in sweet corn processing. Current varieties in trial are Moonshine, Aubade, and GVS 0210. As we continue this effort more varieties should become available for the processing industry. Gallatin Valley Seed is excited to offer this new product line to our customers.

HRHigh Resistance: describes plant varieties that highly restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pest or pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties. Highly resistant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pest or pathogen pressure.

IRIntermediate Resistance: describes plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to highly resistant varieties. Intermediately resistant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pathogen pressure.

In cases where specific races or strains are not noted the variety is resistant to some, but not necessarily all known races or strains of the pathogen.

Actual crop yield, quality, and level of claimed pest and pathogen resistances, are dependent upon many factors beyond our control and NO WARRANTY is made for crop yield, quality, and level of claimed pest and pathogen resistances.
