Corn is known as a “warm-weather crop.” They are happiest when growing in an area with an ambient temperature between 68 and 73 degrees F. Very cold temperatures will slow the growth of the corn and freezing temperatures will cause freeze injury. Increased exposure to very hot temperatures will also harm the corn growth. Corn also requires moisture for optimal growth. Approximately 0.25 to 0.35 inches of water a day is needed, especially during the corn’s pollination stage.
Corn is a warm-weather crop that grows best in 60-80 degree temperatures and in “fertile, loamy, well drained soils of pH 5.8-6.5. Wind protection is another key factor for corn because strong gusts can snap stalks top heavy with ears of corn.
