Storing corn seed

I have a few questions:

What is the proper way to collect and store corn seed?
Does anyone know of a web site?
When is the best time to harvest seed, and can it be frozen for long periods?
Thanks.

If dried completely yes it can be frozen. It should stay good for a long time if stored properly in the freezer.

Heres a website for ya! Corn is about 1/4 of the way down. Enjoy!!

Thanks for the info and the link.
However, it is not very descriptive.
I was just wondering if freezing is an option and also the best method of doing so. Also the longevity of the seed once frozen.
Thanks

How long do you want to keep the seed?? How you should store your seed depends on how long you want to keep it.
