Sugar-enhanced Sweet Corn Cultivar Evaluation for Northern Indiana, 2007
Elizabeth T. Maynard, Purdue University - Main CampusFollow
"The Indiana Agricultural Statistics Service reported sweet corn for fresh market sales was
harvested from 5,200 acres in Indiana in 2006 and had a total value of $7.6 million. Sweet corn
fields are located throughout the state. In northern Indiana, bicolor corn is most commonly
grown. Varieties with improved eating quality are of interest to both producers and consumers.
Producers are also interested in yield, ear size, appearance, and agronomic characteristics. This
paper reports on 11 sugar enhanced and synergistic sweet corn cultivars that were evaluated at
the Pinney-Purdue Agricultural Center in Wanatah, Indiana."
