I live in NW AZ and every year I've tried to grow sweet corn I end up losing the crop to earworms. I've tried neem oil. I've tried tight-husked varieties like Country Gentleman.

This year I'm starting my corn inside and planting an early maturing variety called Candy Mountain--hoping the crop will mature before the earworms show up. This year I'll also try bt.

Has anyone else tried early maturing varieties to solve this problem?
