Sweet Corn:

We are changing some of our sweet corn varieties to provide early maturing  and reduced corn earworms. The early corn will be (SE) Sugar Enhanced, Great Taste But not as Sweet as (SH2) Super Sweet  Type which will be ready 2-4 weeks later. These two types can be used in Organic Production.

We trying this because in many years the later corn has been so infested with earworms you could not eat it.
