Organic corn requires a full six to eight hours of sun a day. Organic corn is fairly tolerant of different soil types however, it does require plenty of nutrients. Be sure to add plenty of compost to your soil when planting your corn.
Plant your organic corn seed after your last frost, and once your soil has reached 50 degrees. Sow your seed one inch deep, and spread out your holes six to ten inches from each other.
Organic corn is a nutrient beast. Corn stalks grow very rapidly and require a generous amount of nutrients to sustain growth. Fertilize you organic corn with compost one month after planting, and again when the tassels appear.
Organic corn is generally pest free but the most common problem you will run into is corn earworms.
Three weeks after corn silks appear, start checking ripeness and harvest your corn.
DO NOT EAT GMO CORN, grow your own organic corn yourself!
HARVEST AND ENJOY!
