1998 Observations
Grower Gus found corn loves chicken manure, and that both the non-hybrid White and Yellow Sweet corn were susceptible to black smut fungus. Grower Gus also found that he had to let the corn seeds dry on the cob to prevent them from spouting after harvest in the high humidity. Grower Jeroen found that high humidity caused his crop to rot while standing.
