Farming Corn for Money

Corn can be used as food, and as raw materials for the manufacture of fuel, alcohol and essential chemicals. We have a guide for you if you are interested in growing corn commercially. Find out the basics of corn planting and be led to resources that could help you start a corn farm.

Corn is the most widely grown crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world. Corn comes in different species and subspecies.

It is used in a variety of ways, particularly as food – as vegetable, source of starch, and ingredient for animal food products, among others. It is also used for the production of biofuel, and chemical products like ethanol and as source of cooking oil.

Corn Farming Basics

Corn is grown by planting seeds in cluster directly in soil during springtime. They are planted in hills, in furrows or rows. For optimum growth, recommended rows and seed spacings must be followed (2 to 4 inches apart for seeds). Planting a crop twice or thrice in one season is recommended to ensure continued harvest. Watering must also be done, possibly through irrigation for large farms and where moisture content of soil is low. Corn needs enough water particularly during pollination time. But care should be exercised so that water doesn’t flow in the tassels as this could wash down pollen needed for fertilization.

Corn is a heavy consumer of nitrogen and could well use fertilizing three times during its development. It also needs weeding and protection from pests and insects, whose destruction can significantly affect yield. Crop rotation and use of hybrid corn varieties are recommended to make the crop more resistant to pests and diseases. Crop rotation is also recommended as planting the same crop successively decreases yield. It also increases fertilizer needs in the next cropping.

Similar Articles

Maturity of the corn depends on the corn variety and the amount of heat the ears receive from the sun. Generally, it matures two to three months after planting. Harvesting for small crops is done manually, but for large crops, corn ears are harvested by mechanical pickers. Afterwards, a seller removes the kernels from the ears. After drying, the kernels are stored in bins.

Income Loss Protection for Corn Farmers

As corn, just as any crop, is subject to risks, corn farmers are better off putting some measures to protect their income from losses due to adverse weather condition, fire, insects, plant diseases, animals pests and failure of irrigation system. A farmer can even protect his income in case projected and actual harvest prices differ. Visit the website of the U.S. Department of Agriculture for risk management programs available.

  • Raghunath expert adviser said on May 3, 2011

    @Alvin, Hi Alvin, You need to choose a place which gets more sunlight, well drained, and high moisture retentive. Before planting corn add lots of compost to the soil. Place the seeds in 3-4 inches distance from each other and half inch deep. As these plants need lots of water so there should be good water facilities and give atleast half inches of water to the plants per week. Give organic fertilizer to the plants when they will reach ten inches in size. Harvest them when silks are dry and brown.

I have just started out a business in maize for animal feed - plantation-mill-wholesale. Currently, I have a small mill consisting of a dryer, thrasher, and grainers, and I have also just started out with our own plantations on a small scale. So far, the plantation and mill productions have been inconsistent, as my approaches have been via trial and error. I would greatly appreciate if you (or anyone who reads this) could introduce anyone who would be interested to work with me to develop this business; who could share some expert advise to improve on traditional farming methods; who would be keen to share his or her experiences on the maize-animal feed industry.
