HOW TO GROW CORN?
Advice on agro-techniques at each crop stage, selection of varieties and sowing seeds. Tips on growing, fertilising, protecting and harvesting.
Corn is one of the most efficient and profitable crops in the cereal family. It is a spring grain to be sown in April or May, depending on the soil temperature. This crop is most often used for animal feed (silage and grain), but cultivation for milling purposes (production of corn groats and meal) is becoming increasingly popular.
Its main advantages are the low requirements in terms of soil and climate conditions. Corn grows rapidly and is very resistant to thermal stress and water shortages. However, this does not mean that all corn varieties guarantee high yield and profitability. The choice of corn seeds is the most important factor in achieving high yield.
