The Q&A Archives: Corn Fertilizing

Question: I use solid 12-12-12 fertilizer on my corn. I plant the supersweet varieties. Should I fertilize when I plant the seed or wait until the corn has emerged from the soil.

Answer: Top dress the corn when plants are about 8" tall and again when the plants have tassels. Also, it would greatly benefit the corn to add some organic material to the soil such as compost, composted cow manure, fish emulsion, etc.
