Plant corn in blocks, not rows, and always plant at least 16. A 4x4 arrangement is best. Corn is wind-pollinated, which means each stalk needs other corn stalks nearby in order to pollinate and produce ears. If the corn is too spread out, like in a row, or there isn't enough of it, it will not pollinate correctly and you will not get any ears of corn.

Corn needs a long growing season so it is important to get it in the ground as soon as possible. Two weeks after the last Spring frost is ideal. The soil temperature needs to be above 65F.

Plant seeds 1 1/2" deep and 4-6" apart. Space rows 30-36" apart. When the seedlings reach 3-4" tall, thin them to 8-12" apart. They must be thinned or they will not thrive. Corn has extremely shallow roots so take care in weeding and watering so as not to disturb them.
