Temperature is part of the plant environment and its influence on the growth and development of economic plants has been extensively investigated. The rates of many physiological processes occurring in plants are markedly influenced by temperature and may be manifested in subsequent morphological changes. The present investigations were conducted to test the effect of mean soil temperature during the first two weeks on the maturity of sweet corn. Soil temperature studies were conducted with three varieties of sweet corn in 1960 and 1961 under both controlled and field conditions.
