Hi all, I've been doing some maize crosses over summer (and am still working on some at the moment) and have managed some short day maize crosses to Painted Mountain x sweet F1 and Glass Gem. Does anyone have any insight into the genetic control of short day length in maize? Did your F1's, F2's display this short day trait or was there segregatiion?

Secondly, the cooking time of flints for polenta - does anyone understand what makes a flint corn cook more quickly? Is it more flinty endosperm or another factor entirely? Any thoughts appreciated.

Cheers
Steve
