Zea mays

Cultivation: Corn requires rich, fertile soil. Sow seeds after last frost date. Soil should be at least 65 F for fast germination. (Corn will not germinate if soil temperature is less than 55 F.) Plant in blocks of at least 4 rows of a single hybrid (as opposed to fewer, longer rows) for good pollination and good tip-fill. It is not necessary to remove suckers (side sprouts growing from the base of the plant). Studies show that removing them may actually reduce yields.
For shoots/microgreens, soak seed 6-8 hours. Follow germination temperatures. Broadcast seeds in soil media.
