Additional Information



CULTURE: Cold soil planting risks poor germination. Even treated corn seeds risk low germination under 60°F (16°C). Only treated seeds of good cold-germinating varieties may be sown in 55°F (13°C) soil if warmer weather is anticipated. Otherwise wait until soil temperature is at least 60°F (16°C). Please see the sweet corn comparison chart for minimum soil temperature at planting for individual varieties. Make first sowings of UNTREATED seeds when soil is warm, at least 65°F (18°C). Floating row covers may be used on early plantings to help moderate soil temperature.
PLANTING:
Plan to separate small plantings of Super Sweets by a distance of 300 feet from non-Super Sweet varieties, or by time, a 10-day planting date/maturity difference. Extensive crossing with non-Super Sweets will result in tough, starchy kernels in both types. Sow 3/4-1" deep, 6-7" apart (or 2 seeds every 9", thinning to 1 plant), rows 30-36" apart. Increase this rate for untreated seeds. Arrange in blocks of at least 4 rows for proper pollination, which is needed for well-filled ears. Successive plantings can be made through early summer; most growers prefer to extend the sweet corn season by planting a few varieties of different maturities.
INSECT PESTS:
Consult your local Extension office for Integrated Pest Management information. Reduce insect pests in the next corn crop by prompt plowing-in or removal and composting of cornstalks after harvest.
HARVEST:
When kernels are full and "milky," generally indicated by a drying and browning of the ear silks. Record the date on which about half the plants show silk. Corn is ready to eat 18-24 days after ear silks first show; the warmer the weather, the sooner you can pick it.
DAYS TO MATURITY:
Varies widely with weather conditions and planting dates. Use these figures to compare one variety to another, not to accurately predict maturity on a given day.
AVG. SEEDING RATE:
1M/500', 5M/2,500', 25M/12,500', 30M/acre at 2 seeds/ft. in rows 36" apart.
SEED SPECS:
SEEDS/LB.: Avg. 2,700, su/se/synergistic type; Avg. 2,900 super sweet.
PACKET:
150 seeds, sows 75' at 2 seeds/ft.
PLEASE SPECIFY:
(1) treated with fungicide seed protectants (T), or (2) untreated seeds. We offer most varieties untreated for organic growers. All fungicide treated corn seeds are polymer-coated after treatment to prevent rubbing off or dusting of the treatment.
