G'Day All,
Can someone please tell me the process involved in drying corn kernels for planting? Is it simly a matter of stripping them off the cob, drying them and then planting them? I could buy the seeds which would be easier, but I thought I'd give this a go.
See ya in the soup.

Iffen it's sweetcorn, then it's hybred, and you can't use the seed and get sweetcorn back.

Mudcat, I got some corn stalks today for my sisterinlaw, two bunches together you could almost wrap your hands around $5.00 each. I bet they didn't sell that much in cobs off them. Do you sell the stalks, you should.
Later Bob

We just let them dry on the cob and rub them off the next year to plant. It's pretty much what happens in nature.

Yup, let them dry on the cob. and don't wait for kernels of popcorn or Indian (decorative) corn to dent, cuz they won't. :)
