If you have any desire to establish post beans with your corn, permit three feet between stalks. This is a decent blend since the beans utilize the cornstalks as posts and fix nitrogen for the corn. At the point when the corn arrives at six crawls in level, plant a bean on each side of it around eight inches away. Plant popcorn and decorative corn as you would sweet corn. Profundity of planting relies upon the season and dampness accessible. From the get-go in the season, plant sweet corn at 1-1/2 inches and field corn at two inches. As the dirt heats up and dampness diminishes, plant somewhat more profound; late plantings of sweet corn ought to be made three to four inches down.
To space sweet corn plantings for summer-long satisfaction, plant an early assortment when the dirt heats up, a mid season assortment five to ten days after the fact and a late assortment in one more week.
