How to Grow Corn
Watering : Requires ample water especially during fruiting -- up to 2 inches per week.
Pest Problems : Birds and raccoons, Japanese beetles. Corn earworms.
Fertilizing : Corn is unique in that it grows above ground. This enables the gardener to fertilize by side dressing, applying a band of organic granular fertilizer directly to the soil surface around the base of the plant. Apply according to rates indicated on package before fruit set.
