No cob maize

    Recommended Posts

    Hi ,I know the Game season has only just finished ,but Iam looking ahead for working out our game cover for next season .Has anyone tried the no cob maize I think it's called foxxi ,apparently it doesn't in a normal summer produce cobs ,the reason we're maybe looking at this maize is to not have the badgers /deer knocking it down to get to the cobs which we have a problem here with .prefer maize over kale as we have acres and acres of cauliflower s grown on our shoot ,have anyone out tried this maize any feedback would be great thanks in advance

    Not sure if it was that variety but was in a shoot that had a drive next to a farm yard and had to put cobless maize in to stop rat problem near buildings. functioned exactly the same as normal just no food value.

    Thanks for that reply ,I just wondered if the maize had any damage from the badgers or deer looking for the cobs or they left it alone ??

    We have the same problem with Badgers going to try Sorghum this year which also stands the weather better than Maize.

    Why maize if you don't want cobs?

    Try kale or some of the vigorous grasses.

    We have tried sorghum on several occasions  and more hit and miss with weather when growing down here ,last year would have been brilliant with all the heat but you can get caught out with the wrong summer with this here in cornwall maize is far better growing temp wise .Growing kale is fine but issues are that the ground has been heavily growing commercially cauliflowers for the last 5years and we struggle with club root 😡😡even to the point we have planted utopia which brights said was club root resistant ,when they saw a sample they changed there wording for it
