Despite the terrible spring in the UK, Long Ashton Research Station has just
planted out its year 2000 Mu-grid. Our loses this year have been heavy but
we have managed to plant out around 4,000 individuals. These plants were
derived from various selfings and so the grid as a whole contains several
interesting mutants. We have further limited seed for this material.
If any (UK or European?) maize researchers wish to check out the plants and
select suitable material they are free to do so.
Just give me a call to arrange a suitable date.
