Sweet corn is an important crop for many diversified vegetable farms. Transplanting sweet corn has the advantage of avoiding cold soil germination problems at the beginning of the growing season, enhancing stand establishment, allowing for earlier mechanical cultivation, and promoting earlier harvests that can help attract customers. This case study describes the details of transplanting techniques used by Jon Satz, of Wood's Market Garden in Brandon, Vermont. Jon helped pioneer the use of transplanting for sweet corn. Some of his early knowledge about this technique was acquired through work funded by a Northeast SARE Farmer Grant in 2003.
