Northern Research and Demonstration Farm
Sweet corn growers in eastern U.S. have transplanted sweet corn started in green houses for earlier harvest and to avoid cold soil germination problems. Floating row covers were used to promote early growth and to provide some protection from frost. The objective of this study was to determine what effect these practices would have on field corn.
