Sweet Corn Producion 2013The news around the midwest is that sweet corn harvest is a little late this year, but the good news is that the yields should be very good. The cooler weather and regular rains are the reason for the delay, but in the end we might benefit from a higher-yielding crop.

While consumers might have to wait a little longer, the good news is that corn ears should be a little bigger than normal when they do ripen and should be available in good supply late into the season, O’Malley said. Source Quad City Times, June 19, 2013 “Sweet Corn Will Be Later This Year”
