Organic Seed Corn
Organic Seed Corn was a natural fit into the De Dell philosophy, and we have hardly been able to keep up with demand ever since. Being a completely Non-GMO Seed Corn company, it was easy to transition into organics and we are proud to offer many of our great conventional hybrids to organic farmers. We regularly sell out of organic seed corn every year so place your orders early!

DL 3655 is a grain hybrid that is very similar to DL 4555 but earlier. With even more vigour than DL 4555, this showy hybrid is an excellent choice for organic growers. Large wide leaves close the canopy quickly and DL 3655 stays healthy and green late into the fall. The ears exhibit good flex, with good husk flare and ears that hang over. This hybrid will also have above average test weight and excellent grain appearance.
DL 2944 is a tall, vigorous hybrid ideal for grain or silage. This hybrid has long ears with high test weight grain. This healthy hybrid is best suited to moderate plant populations for optimum performance. DL 2944 is closely related to DL 2288 and has similar hybrid characteristics; although it is slightly later. For genetic diversity, pair with DL 1960 or DL 3146. Check out DL 2944's hybrid showcase here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtIrly8CqgI
Early season vigour and quick canopy closure can be expected from this broad leaf variety, minimizing weed pressure. DL 3808 exhibits good ear flex, adding kernels rows given the right conditions, but also maintains performance under stress. Good disease resistance especially to Northern Corn Leaf Blight. Avoid sulfonylurea (SU) herbicides as DL 3808 can be sensitive under certain conditions. For DL 3808 to perform at its peak, it is best to keep it to a moderate plant population.
