You have to plant it down to the moisture level. Up to 3 inches is ok. Most corn is planted at 1 1/2 to 2 inches. If you plant it shallower than that then the root will form on top of the ground and will not perform as well. Don't worry , it will come up and produce. Also it will need about 150 units of nitrogen per acre. I put it out at plant, and at sidedress in a split application.

Just make your rows add a little lime and fertilizer, drop 2 seeds every 8in. then go back and cover. I do not get to detailed about how deep, but i guess it is about an 1in. or so. I planted my corn april 23rd and it popped out of the ground saturday.

We have alot of cow-sh*t..:shade:
Will that work for a ferilizer? Cause i am sure it has a lot of nitrogen.
We have a spreader too.
