Got an early seed catalog today; reminds me to start thinking about my 2016 crop plan.
I'm talking about corn a fair bit, and the primary reason I do is that it's one of the most calorie-intensive crops per acre on this plant. Roughly 15 million calories per acre. So in terms of efficient use of space and equipment, it's very, very hard to beat. I completely understand why its such a popular crop worldwide.
Or I may split my order and go for another short-season corn and try a longer growing and compare the two. I'm also going to save some of the seed from this harvest and see how it does.
