- Corn is a warm season tender annual and requires high fertility and deep, well-draining soil. Fertilize ground well in spring with high quality compost or a complete fertilizer. Direct sow (recommended) after soil has warmed to 65 degrees F and all danger of frost has passed, to ensure germination. Plant in blocks of at least 4 rows for adequate pollination. Once corn reaches 4 inches tall, thin out to 8-12 inches apart. Side dress with fertilizer at 12″, or when leaves start yellowing. Corn must be well-watered due to their shallow roots.
- Harvest when ear silks have dried down and kernels are full and “milky”. Corn is generally ready 18-24 days after the first silk has formed.
