Sweet Corn ‘Suckers’

Anonymous added on June 5, 2011 | Answered

When my sweet corn is growing, sometimes the plants develop what appears to be 'suckers' or secondary stalks on either side of my central stalk. Is that normal? What should I do? I've heard I can prune those back and that they take energy from the central plant.
