GOOD CORN SOWING

In addition to the choice of corn variety, the yield and development of plants are strongly influenced by sowing, which should be carried out as early as possible.

The date when seeds should be sown is determined by the temperature of the soil, rather than the air temperature.

For stable emergence and proper development in the early stages, corn requires a soil temperature of approximately 10° C. It should be remembered that soil heats up unevenly and temperature is determined by organic matter content and soil class. Light soil positions have less organic matter than heavy soils.

Favourable weather forecasts after sowing make it possible to optimise development. Rain should be avoided after sowing (for 48 hours) and stable or even rising temperatures are required.
