Augmented Sweet Corn: The Game Changers Crookham Company was established in 1911 with a focus on innovation. The company has emerged to hold the largest sweet corn seed bank in the world. In the 1970s Bill Crookham began a daunting program where advanced varieties were taste tested. This program was handed to George Crookham in the 1990s and it has emerged into what is now called the Augmented series of sweet corn. The Augmented Sweet Corns attract customers with its high quality taste and a burst in the bite, while also being a favorite with growers for its solid agronomics. Nirvana and Eden fall into the category of being a mid-season and AP-426 is a main season and has an added benefit of a boosted disease package. All varieties have a quick snap that makes for an easy harvest. Crookham Company invites you to talk to your seed distributor or our sweet corn specialist about how these items might add value and advance your sweet corn program.
