Q.Corn Tasseling Too Early

Anonymous added on July 15, 2012 | Answered

We have been having a problem last year and this year with our sweet corn tasseling too early. Last year the stalks didn’t get over waist high before they tasseled, and this year it looks like they are again tasseling too soon. Our corn this year varies from chest high to waist high and is starting to tassel. Have any ideas?

This is actually more common than you would think and is normally weather related. Corn tends to tassel early if the plants are hit with a cold snap early in their development, usually from planting too early. It can also happen when the weather becomes way too hot. There is really little you can do, but the corn will still continue to grow.
