• Growing Sweetcorn in Alaska's Cool Environments

      Dinkel, D. H. (School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, 1966-11)
      Sweet corn can be grown in Alaska's cool environments by employing clear polyethylene mulch to raise soil temperatures. Rows should be run north and south, spaced about 5 feet apart for 4-foot wide mulch. Weeds can be controlled under clear polyethylene mulch by spraying with atrazine after seeding and before mulching.
