Anonymous added on June 12, 2015 | Answered

My corn is dying. It’s turning yellowish and dry on the ends. Should I cover it? 90-100 degrees here. I have 8 plants that have been growing so very slow since May 1. Something is wrong.

They may not be getting enough water. Corn has very shallow roots and needs lots of water during its active growth, especially in temps as high as you are experiencing. Typically, the garden needs about an inch or so of water each week. It is a good idea to water deeply (for about 20 min. or so) every other day or two, depending on the weather. Once temps reach 85 F and up, daily watering is often necessary.
