  • CORN: Five keys for high yielding corn

     There are five keys to high corn yields: 1) good genetics, 2) maximize days suitable for growing, 3) achieve 90 to 95 percent light interception at or close to silking, 4) adequate nutrients to complete plant growth and seed fill, and 5) adequate water and air to complete plant growth and seed fill.

    By optimizing all of these five keys, the odds for producing high corn yields are much improved.

  • COLUMN: Grow a nutritious garden in a pot

     Don’t let a lack of time or space get in the way of gardening your way to a healthy lifestyle. Plant a container of nutritious vegetables and herbs.  Include a few planters on the front porch, back patio or right outside the kitchen door.

    All that’s needed is some potting mix, fertilizer, plants and a container with drainage holes. A 15-to-24-inch diameter pot or 24-to-36-inch long window box is a good starting size. Bigger containers hold more plants and moisture longer, so it can be watered less frequently.
