CULTURE: Super sweet corn is different from normal sweet corn because it contains a gene called "shrunken-2," or "sh2" for short. Plan to isolate home garden plantings of super sweets 300 feet from non-super sweet varieties or stagger by a 10 day planting date/maturity difference. Extensive crossing will cause toughness in both types. For complete information, please read our technical sheet, Super Sweet Corn Production, formally known as the 10 Golden Rules. 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. 2,900. PACKET: 150 seeds, sows 75' at 2 seeds/ft.
