Why is my sweet corn not germinating?

Submitted: 02:45PM, 20 Oct 2009
Answer: Sweet corn requires warm soil for germination (above 13°C for standard sweet corn varieties and about 18°C for supersweet varieties). This means air temperature is several degrees warmer. Too much water will also cause the seed to rot.
