'Gotta Have It' Hybrid Corn Doesn't Look Like ......

14 years ago

My 'Gotta Have It' Hybrid Corn from Gurneys doesn't look like it wants to be "had" this year!

I planted back on May 15th. I checked PH and it was around 6.5. I fertilized with 12-12-12.

Now it's Almost 2 months later and the stalks are only 2 feet high. I've made sure that my garden has been watered 2 times a week during the dry season, and we've had at least 1 good rain once a week since planting.

What could be the problem? I'm looking around at field corn near my home, and some of it was planted June 1st and it's 5 ft. tall already. Am I doing something wrong, or am I just being impatient?
