Assessing Drought Damage To Sweet Corn
meinthecorn.jpg
August 26th 2002. Atotal loss of Sweet Corn due to the Drought . Approx. $3,500.00 loss per Acre.

Unfortunatly, after all the hours and months of preperation and patients our entire 3 acre crop of 3 different Sweet Corns never stood taller than 3 1/2 - 4 foot tall and never produced full ears to harvest due to an extreme drought.   It was very upsetting, but we'll try again next season.

Average ear size was 3-4" Usually 8-10"
