Jacob and I got our sweet corn notill planted today. Earlier I scratched the rows in with the pointed hoe, broadcast sulfur, borax, Epsom salt, copper sulfate manganese sulfate and both Walmart and Jobes organic fertilizers. Then I hit it with glyphosate. Today I banded some granular fertilizer, Jacob incorporated it with the hoe, I pushed the planter over it and Jacob covered it. Later we will hit it with more glyphosate before the corn sprouts, and when it is about a foot tall, side dress some more fertilizer. We have done this for years and it works great in our silt soil that is full of worms.
