CULTURAL PRACTICES: Sweet corn requires full sun exposure, a rich soil and heat. Sowing should be done between mid-May and mid-June. SPACING: Sweet corn seeds are sown at a distance of 25 centimetres and at a depth of 1 to 3 centimetres depending on the size of the seed. Spacing between rows is 90 centimetres. The growth of seedlings may be earlier in a light, hot and rocky soil. Sowing has to be done later in cold and humid soils, such as clay. In order to have nice ears, it is preferable to plant six (6) small rows rather than one long one.
