Didn't see this until today:

http://www.the-scientist.com/
articles.view/articleNo/48879/title/Record-Setting-Corn-Grows-45-Feet-Tall/

The grower, Jason Karl, is an academic professional, not a competitive grower. http://www.bigpumpkins.com/msgboard/ViewThread.asp?b=36&p=535351

Check out the picture of the structure he uses to grow them . . . far out! Interesting how is past 30+ foot accomplishments were done by changing environmental factors, whereas this 45 Foot stalk took genetic work.

I would love to get my hands on some of those Chiapas-234 corn seeds, and build a 50 foot tower in my back yard!

If the pasting the link in your browser doesn't bring up the article, enter the word corn into the search box for TheScientist website and that will bring it up
