The seed is light and requires experimentation with planter plates. Plant multiple rows rather than one long row for pollination purposes. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Sow seeds in spring/summer after last frost (60°F minimum soil temperature). Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Harvest 21-24 days after silking and hand harvest only, Mirai® has extremely tender kernels. Succession plant when first planting emerges soil.
