Sweet Corn: Organic Production
This publication discusses key aspects of producing organic sweet corn including varieties, soil fertility, crop rotations, weed control, insect pest management, diseases, harvesting, postharvest handling, marketing and production economics.
Although production guides on conventional sweet corn practices are readily available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service, comprehensive information on organic cultivation practices is diffi cult to fi nd. Organic sweet corn production differs from conventional production primarily in soil fertility and pest management practices. These issues are the primary focus of this publication.
