Cultivation trials in sweetcorn

Cultivation trials in sweetcorn

Norsk Landbruksforsking 4(2): 107-113

In field trials in 1987-88 at Landvik, the effects of different cultural techniques on sweetcorn Northern Belle (long growth season) and Canada Cross (short growth season) with or without polythene tunnels were investigated. Seeds were either sown in groups of 3 in the field or in pots (3/pot) and transplanted to the field 14 d later. Polythene tunnels reduced time for sowing/transplanting to harvest and this was the most important factor in increasing yield and plant quality.
