Q.top of corn turning brown

Zone 08086 | Anonymous added on July 8, 2020 | Answered

This is our 1st try at corn. Not sure it’s quite ready, but some top of husks are missing, corn turning brown. Can’t see worms or bugs. Perhaps birds? (We just returned from vacation, and know we had a lot of rain as well.) Your help appreciated!

Your corn may have developed a fungus due to heavy rains. Here's an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/corn/corn-ear-rot-treatment.htm

You may also want to check the corn for any
beetles, earwigs or worms, and make sure the ground around the plants is clean and clear of debris.
