Growing Corn in Arkansas
Hey all! Any pointers on growing corn in the Ozarks of Arkansas? I square foot garden mostly, and have some corn right now (started in my greenhouse, which I just uncoverd this weekend) in a small 3 Sisters setup, but I'm considering planting a lot more.
It may just be temporary insanity. I previously grew corn by itself and I fed a lot of corn borers with it. I ended up with 4 half-ears out of 16 plants (one full 4x4 square bed). The Arkansas Cooperative Extension website gives info for commercial growers, but I didn't find it helpful for an amateur, except the advice to plant early because late summer has the worst problems.
Other than doing the 3 Sisters thing, any advice other than just using gobs of insecticide (which is basically what was recommended by ArCoopExt)?
