SuperSeedWare® There's a new corn in town! SSW® is a new and exciting breakthrough in super-sweet corn genetics. Developed and patented by Abbott & Cobb, SSW® 's are 100% natural. They have notable enhanced performance even with early plantings in colder or wetter soil. Growers can expect strong stalk and root systems, early maturity, better disease tolerance and high yields. SSW® 's also have dramatically improved seed storage and shelf life. Patent No.'s: 8,796,504 and 8,822,756 and 6,184,438. Seed Density and Appearance SSW®'s are denser than sh2 seeds, and do not show defined dents, wrinkles, or dimples. They are heavier, sturdier, with smoother coats, and are easier to handle than conventional sh2 corns. Increased Yield Potential! Plant Populations SSW®'s have very high germ rates and will likely establish a population close to the sown quantity. It is important NOT to sow seed too close together, as this may result in crowded stands, smaller or misshapen ears, and lower yield. Fuller and More Durable Seeds! Isolation For best possible appearance, maximum eating quality, and longest shelf life for 100% of the kernels, SSW®'s should be isolated from cross pollination by other corn types. The usual practices, using maturity, sowing dates or physical isolation, would apply. Uniform Growth! SS7501Y F1 Moisture Level and Soil Temperature Tests have shown best emergence with normal or slightly above normal moisture. Be sure to provide adequate moisture, but avoid over watering. Sweet corn tends not to germinate below 45° Fahrenheit; however, SSW® shows improved vigor and uniformity at lower temperatures as compared to ordinary sh2 varieties. SS7403RY F1 More Corn Flavor! Stronger Root Systems! Stronger Stalks! SS2880MR F1 Proper Handling and Storage SSW® seed is denser and less susceptible to physical damage than conventional sh2s. However, in order to ensure best results, avoid rough handling and excessive agitation prior to planting. As with all seed, store any unused seed in sealed containers in a cool, dry storage area to ensure maximum shelf life and viability.
