Silking times

This summer I am conducting an experiment with the corn rootworm.  For this
experiment, I would like to provide the beetles with a continuous supply of
corn silk as food.  I have considered planting corn weekly for a period of
several weeks, but what I have been told is that planting time will not have
a great effect on when silks will be produced.  I would require silks to be
present as early as July to as late as October.  Does anyone have any
suggestions?
