Growers Face Challenges in Raising Sweet Corn This Year

Sweet corn….those two words mean the true taste of summer for Iowans. This year has been an interesting and challenging one for growers like Todd Kjormoe in rural Hardin County.

He says getting enough people to help tend and bring in the sweet corn to sell has been another issue.

He has been growing east of Iowa Falls for ten years and says the taste of the sweet corn they are picking is a bit different compared to previous years…

Kjormoe believes one issue is causing the variance in the sweet corn taste this year.

Kjormoe has nine locations in north central and northeast Iowa for his homegrown sweet corn this summer.
