Soil and Water: Corn is a heavy feeder requiring high amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK). Its weak and shallow root system likes loose soil with a high compost content.
Planting and Growing: Sow seeds directly outdoors 1 week after the last frost. You can start earlier by using black or green plastic mulches and floating row covers to obtain optimum conditions. Plant in blocks rather than rows to ensure good germination. To prevent cross pollination, plant different varieties at lest 500' .
Harvesting and Storage: Ripe corn usually has a small amount of green silk near the top with dry, brownish silk at the ends. Sugar content is highest in the morning.
