Why Corn Needs Specialized Nutrients

Corn needs specialized nutrients such as high nitrogen levels for growth and development, phosphorus for robust root systems, and potassium to improve disease resistance and overall plant health. Adequate micronutrients like zinc and magnesium are also crucial for maximizing yield.


Ensure corn gets about 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week, especially during the tasseling and ear development stages.


To support optimal growth, grow corn in an area that receives full sunlight for at least six to eight hours a day.


Plant corn in rich, well-draining soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8 and amend with compost or manure for added fertility.
