Adapting Tropical Corn To Long Days

Hey! It’s been a while, but I’m back from the field – with lots of photos.

In this post, I’m gonna show more examples of what happens when one moves around a few alleles from temperate corn into tropical corn.

Pure Amazon (L) vs. Adapted Amazon (Entrelaçado) (R); 90 days to bloom vs. 55 days

The goal is to eliminate the sensitive genetics, while keeping everything else. It’s a whole lot easier to maintain a corn that doesn’t grow to 15 feet and bloom in 90 days, afterall!
