Corn


CULTURE: Sow outdoors in late spring when soil is warm, usually 2-4 weeks after field corn is planted. Cool weather and excessive moisture will cause poor seed emergence. SOIL: Corn can be grown in a wide range of soil types. Opt. pH 6.0 to 6.8 FERTILITY: Corn thrives on liberal amounts of Nitrogen. Apply part before planting and again when corn is about 2ft high. For proper ear placement and fill out, corn requires adequate moisture. GERMINATION: 5-7 days at 70 F/21C. Cool soil will decrease germination. SPACING: Sow 6-10cm/2-4” (6-8” machine seeding) apart and 1cm/1/2” deep in rows 75cm/30” apart. Thin out to 20cm/8”. PESTS: Main pests are ear worms & corn maggots. 
 For proper pollination plant the same variety in blocks of 4 rows or more.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
