When to Plant:

  • Make sure the weather is warming up and your soil temperatures are at least 60-65 degrees--corn will not germinate and seeds can rot if soil temperatures are too cold.
  • Best months are generally May-June, depending on your zone.

How to Plant:

  • Plant in full sun in highly fertile, well drained soil with a 6.0 to 6.8 pH.
  • Sweet corn will prefer rich soil with high nitrogen and plenty of moisture.
  • Soil should be amended prior to planting with aged manure or rich compost.
  • The ideal spot to plant corn would be in the same plot that yielded a healthy bean or pea crop the year before--these crops contribute the needed nitrogen to the soil.
  • Corn is wind pollinated and, especially for smaller plots, should be planted in blocks, rather than long rows.
  • Seeds should be planted 2-3 per hole, about 1-2 inches deep.
  • Plantings should be approximately 12-15 inches apart, and rows should be 30-36 inches apart.
  • If more than one seed sprouts from a single planting, they should be thinned to the strongest sprout.
  • Shorter varieties can be planted closer, and sweeter varieties should be planted shallower.
  • Water plots well after planting and keep consistently moist through germination and harvest. As weather becomes warmer, increase watering. Sufficient moisture is crucial for plants to develop and produce properly.
  • Corn should be fertilized with a nitrogen rich food when plants are about 12-18 inches high and weeds should be controlled so they do not steal moisture and nutrients from your crop. 
  • Corn will produce a fairly shallow root system, so care should be taken not to damage it when removing weeds. Weed control in corn plots is best achieved by a thick mulching, which also helps to maintain moisture.

When to Harvest:

  • Ears will be ready to harvest approximately 3 weeks after silk is visible and has become brown.
  • Another way to check, pull down the leaves a bit to reveal the tip of the cob. 
  • The corn kernels should be firm and milky when cut open. 
  • To harvest, bend and pull ear downward from stalk with a twisting motion.
  • Consume or freeze immediately for best quality.

**Rule of thumb, the sweeter the corn, the more water it will need, and the warmer the soil temperatures must be.
