How to Grow
6 seed/gram. When planting in rows, space the seed 4-6" apart, later thinning to 8-12" apart with the rows 22-30" apart. To ensure proper pollination, plant at least 3 to 4 rows. Corn can also be planted with 3 to 4 seeds per hill in hills spaced 12" apart. Plant 1/2 lb. to a 100' row or 10-15 lbs. per acre. Work in a good general vegetable fertilizer at planting, keep weeds under control and the soil evenly watered through the season. Sow only when soils have warmed to 18°C. Some years this happens in mid May, other years we need to wait until late May or early June.
