Re: Starting Corn Farming

Just my two cents worth on the corn farming in the Philippines. A couple of things to note one I am from the US and we grow 10000 + hectares of corn annually on our farms in Russia. We have small amounts of corn in the Philippines for our feeds for the Poultry business we have.
The same principals we use in the USA (most of the text book answers here come from the USA) and Russia apply here also. There are very basic things you should look at before planting.
1. Your location
2. Annual rainfall in your area
3. Topography of the land you are planting
4. Average days of wind during growth period
5. Drainage for the are you will be growing
These are the simple things you can figure out without having the experts opinions
The next step is you really need to know the soil conditions to pick the correct variety of corn. I have found here in the Philippines many do not know how to properly take soil samples so best to really ask around to find someone who knows that they are talking about.
Last but not least general fertilizer application on NPK should not be applied bu averaging the soil of your whole area especially if there is a hill in that particular area.
Also for the success of the plants find out the calcium levels in the soil and make sure it breaks out the available calcium levels. This is the carrier for all of your micro-nutrients.
However if you want to stay simple the top 5 statements I made will at least get you started in the correct direction.

Some things to NOT DO that I see a lot of here.
1. Do not put 3 seeds to one spot! This does not produce a good crop!
2. Do not overcrowd the plants as proper airflow is as important as good drainage

Anyway we look at many other things when planting on our large farms but these are the basics I have started with here in the Philippines.
