Plan a long season of sweet corn
publication date: Jun 1, 2010
Sweet corn presents challenges for organic farmers. Some of these can be easily overcome; others warrant careful
consideration. There’s no denying that sweet corn takes up a lot of space, so if you are really short of land, you may decide to forego corn. On the other hand, corn doesn’t take a lot of work, so if you have the space, but are short of help, corn is a good choice. The rewards are probably obvious: devoted, satisfied customers! Organically grown hybrid varieties (such as Luscious, Sugar Pearl, Brocade) are available, which helps USDA Organic certified commercial growers.
