Peggy,

Sorry, that information is dated.  Robson Seed Farms was acquired a few
years ago by Peta Seeds, who is owned by Seminis Seeds, the world's largest
vegetable seed company.  They closed out the New York operation last
October and transferred their sweet corn breeding to Idaho.  The person you
may be able to get seed of Seneca 60 or its inbreds is Steve Marshall,
Seminis Vegetable Seeds, 1811 East Florida Avenue, Nampa, ID 83686,  phone
208-466-3351.

Best regards,

Howard
