• Southern Cross Corn

Zea mays

Southern Cross was a very common OP variety in Zimbabwe and Zambia. Southern Cross is one of the parents of the first commercially grown single cross hybrid in the world, SR52.

Released in 1960, SR52 became the most popular hybrid in South Africa, and itself became the parent of many other hybrids. The other parent of SR52 is Hickory King. SR52 was developed by The Seed Maize & Research station near Harare over 50 years ago.
