my corn plants are yellow

by Gary
(Walla Walla, WA)

I moved to a new location and my garden has plenty of sun and water. However, the corn has a yellowish cast. I have adjusted the pH of the soil but it hasn't helped.
What can I do to get my corn green again?
Thank you.

Yellow Corn NEW
by: Kiwi George

Hi Gary. My first instinct when I see yellowing plants is lack of nitrogen o the inability of the plant to take up the nitrogen food resource. In my experience corn is a gross feeder and can use every bit of food you can give it so I would feed a few of your plants with plenty of well watered in nitrogen and see what happens. Whatever you do, do not "blast" your corn with a massive dose of NPK, the shock will in all probability finish it off. My preference is for a seaweed based fertiliser as in addition to the NPK it has a lot of trace elements the absence of which could be the cause of your problem. I would love to hear of the outcome of the additional nutrients
Good luck
