How long will we have corn? What are GMOs?
These are common questions we hear...
To answer the first question, Farmer Dean begins planting sweet corn in late April. He plants about 10 or 11 succession plantings over the next two and a half months, meaning that he plants sweet corn every six or seven days until early July. This way, we have tender, tasty sweet corn maturing every week of the harvest, which, for sweet corn, lasts until first frost.
Regarding the second question, someone recently stated that they thought genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and hybrids were the same.

This may help you understand the dangers of GMOs and why we will not grow them.
