Hello again:

Since I last sent a message to maizenet many things have happened. 
One is that I have been researching cold and frost tolerance in 
maize: anyone else out there doing that too?

The second thing is that I have just begun to publish a newsletter 
for Open Pollinated Corn grower/breeders called "Corn Culture".  Corn 
Culture is a response to a need felt by many OP Corn growers to learn 
more and feel more connected.  This newsletter is primarily aimed at 
anyone in North America who is maintaining or improving OP 
populations (this includes advanced synthetics) or who is privy to 
information about growing, selecting, crossing, marketing, or using 
maize which has not been hybridized or genetically "modified".  Corn 
Culture will come out three times each year (Preplanting or March, 
Tasseling or July, and Postharvest or November) and will cost $15 US 
for a one year subscription.  There are also subscription prices for 
low income individuals ($10) and institutions ($25).  Corn Culture 
will be published in english.  If anyone outside of North America is 
interested in subscribing let me know and I will see what shipping 
will cost and we will try to include you too.

I am looking for reprints and other research reports that involve 
work on OP populations (including public release synthetics) as far 
as selection techniques, production, feed quality, and agronomic 
qualities are concerned.  Information about the history of maize 
varieties, maize breeders, and maize cultures is also desired, 
especially if it can be used or adapted without copyright 
infringement problems.  Information about maize genetics that is of 
some use to farmer/breeders would also be appreciated.  Personal 
information about your "walk with corn" is also of great interest so 
that we OP grower/breeders can get to know one another. 
Advertisements for OP Corn seed can be placed in the first full issue 
at $3 for the first 20 words and $0.15 per word thereafter if sent to 
me by the 1st of February.  Questions can be mailed or emailed to me 
at the addresses below.  If you would like to subscribe just send me 
an email and a check later after we chat (or just send a check if you 
are feeling brave).
