I'm looking for a corn source that carries genetic control of the trait(s)
that allow(s) the ear to hang down sometime between the time of
physiological maturity and the husks openning to allow drying.  Has there
been any research done on this trait and if so what are some references? Is
there a common name used for the trait?  Is there more to it than long shank
with a heavy ear?

Any information will be helpful.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.
