Seed Saving - Corn Tassel Bags
6 1/4" x 6 3/4" x 4 3/4" x 15 1/2"
When to bag tassels:
As the tassels emerge from the top of the plant and mature, the lateral branches begin to droop away from the main stalk and become
horizontal. Once the anthers (usually red or yellow and smaller
than a grain of rice) start to emerge along the tips of the lateral branches and the main branch of the tassel, the tassel is ready
for bagging. If the tassels are bagged while they are still
green, they will stop developing and never shed pollen.
Weather and time of day have a strong bearing on when tassels will
shed pollen. High humidity can cause anthers to remain closed.
Anthers generally begin to shed pollen in the morning after the
dew has evaporated and any morning chill is gone. Pollen shedding
decreases as temperatures top 86°F. Anthers may close up during
the hottest part of the day then reopen in the afternoon or evening. Therefore, the best time to bag tassels is in late afternoon the
day prior to pollination.~section~
