|It's not a good idea to plant different varieties of corn near each other. Corn is wind-pollinated and pollen from one plant will affect the characteristics of the other. If possible, plant each variety in a block of its own at different ends of the garden to keep the pollen from traveling from one stand of corn to the other.
