Corn in Arizona
I am growing corn on the cob in a small area in my back yard.
So far I have been very pleased with the result, however I see that the
silk has turned brown and dry. I also found some ants wanting to have a
corn party. Would the dry brown silk be a cause of hot weather. I have
put so much time and effort into this and would be very disapointed to
see it die. Thank you. Bev. Daly PS I am in Phoenix AZ
Possibly helpful although for primarily for Georgia:
I would guess that hot weather can be another problem.
