    Corn is the most widely grown crop in Georgia. Yields were low until when hybrids better adapted to growing conditions in the southern U.S. were developed. UGA Extension provides farmers information that continues to aid them in corn production.   Periodic and scheduled ERS publications and data on corn and other feedgrains Recent ERS publications related to feedgrains; Corn is the most widely produced feed grain in the United States (U.S.), accounting for more than 95 percent of total production and use. The other three major feed grains are sorghum, barley, and oats.

Field corn is used to create a number of other food products including corn meal, corn chips and livestock feeds as well as a host of non-food products including ethanol and polymers that are used to create plastics and fabric.

The specific time when sweet corn originated cannot be pin-pointed; however, sweet corn was grown by the American Indians and first collected by European settlers in the 's. As mentioned previously, because sweet corn is wind pollinated, quality is best if the stands are isolated from field corn, popcorn, and ornamental corn, as well as from other types of sweet corn.

Isolation, in this sense, means either planting the crops at least feet apart, or staggering plantings so that there is a 10 to 14 day difference Author: Jeanine Davis. Organic sweet corn production is generally very challenging in Kentucky because of the number of weed, disease, and insect problems quality, sweet corn should be picked in the cool of the morning and field heat removed as soon as possible.

Control – Plant high quality, injury- and disease-free seed into a warm (soil temperature consistently above 55°F), moist, but firm seedbed.

Use the most appropriate equipment to assure proper placement of seed. In sweet corn, the sugary (su) or sweet gene on chromosome-4 prevents or retards the normal conversion of sugar into starch during endosperm development, resulting in a sweet taste.

Sweet corn is considered a high-quality vegetable when used in the milk stage at % seed moisture, depending on the endosperm type.

Sweet corn likes fertile, well balanced soils. Because sweet corn is highly outcrossing, at least plants should be planted to maintain a population. To maximize pollination, direct seeded in a square with inches between plants and inches between rows.

for sweet corn is therefore beneficial to farmers in the production of safe and good quality sweet corn by taking account of the environment and health, safety and welfare of workers. The Agricultural Standard Committee deems it necessary to establish the standard on Good Agricultural Practices for Sweet Corn.

This standard is based on the File Size: KB. Production of specialty corn is an excellent way to add value to the corn crop. The need to select for quality traits in the specialty corn breeding process usually results in varieties that have reduced yield compared to commodity corn, so the added value must offset this yield reduction in order to be profitable.

For early production, choose sandy soils that can be plowed early on a site that is not subject to late spring frosts. Varieties Sweet corn varieties are often classified by seed colorFile Size: KB.

Sweet corn, table corn, or sugar corn, is one of the sweetest, most important staple crop next to ifically, sweet corn is called Zea mays rugosa, a cultivar of field corn (Zea mays L.).Production of special types of corn such as popcorn, waxy (or glutinous) corn, high lysine/tryptophan corn, and sweet corn was found to be very promising as livelihood for farmers.

Sweet corn has evolved over the last twenty years, turning into superior varieties with high eating quality and disease resistance. The hybrids of today are far superior in eating quality compared to heirlooms, open-pollinated and older sweet corn hybrid varieties.

Corn production has nearly doubled from around million tons in the early s to around 22 million tons today. This remarkable production growth has been largely driven by adoption of single cross hybrids in the late ’s and continuous demand in domestic and export market.

The longer the sweet corn remains at above optimal temperatures, the shorter the marketable shelf-life.Thus, trends go towards crops the production and harvest of which can be mechanized and which, in the same time, yield high quantity and quality nutrients.
