Corn

Corn needs a consistent source of water and requires rich soil. During the growing season it helps to add a side dressing of a rich nitrogen fertilizer (fish emulsion, manure tea). Adequate available phosphorous is also important. Corn will deplete solid rapidly if planted consecutively in the same place. To develop full-seeded ears, complete pollination must take place. Since corn pollen is wind-borne, it is best to plant in blocks of at least four rows deep or in a circle. Our seed is not treated with a fungicide so plant only after soil has thoroughly warmed. To extend the season, plant under plastic or fabric row cover. One packet = 1 ox = 180 seeds sows 60 feet. 1 lb. = 1800-4000 seeds. CULTURE: Sow after last frost, 3 seeds per foot, 1 inch deep for sugary-enhanced corn or 2 inches deep for normal sugary corns; thin to 8-12 inches apart with 2-3 feet between rows. For circles plant seeds 8 inches apart in circles 2 feet in diameter; 1 foot between circles. SEASON: Warm season, plant after last frost. MIN. SOIL TEMP: 60 degree Fahrenheit. GERMINATION: 4-7 days. SOIL: Rich, slightly acid, 6.0-6.5 pH. COMPANION PLANT: Potatoes, cucumbers, peas, beans. Squash can be grown between stalks. PESTS: CORN EARWORM: Hand pick or squirt silk with mineral oil, or B.t. solution, or inoculate soil with beneficial nematodes. LEAF SPOT: Avoid late plantings, fertilize properly. ROOT ROT: Rotate crops, provide properly drained soils. CUTWORMS: Beneficial nematodes OR diatomaceous earth.
