Straub, R.; Heath, J.
Sweet corn is one of New York's most important vegetable crops being grown on about 1,700 farms (Fig. 1) and representing 11.4 per cent of total vegetable cash - receipts. New York ranks first among states in the production of summer season fresh market sweet corn and seventh in the production of sweet corn for processing. Although the acreage for each is about the same, sale value for fresh market is about 2.8 times that of processing. Statistics on production, value, and utilization of New York state sweet corn are presented in Table 1.
