Hi Laine, Are you saying thatHi Laine, Are you saying that the ears didn't develop? When corn doesn't develop kernels at the top, there are a variety of reasons:  Did you plant too close?  Corn prefers to be planted 9 inches to one foot apart. Is your corn getting enough potassium and nitrogen? If your soil isn't providing this, fertilize. Did you plant enough rows? (Corn needs to planted in big blocks for good pollinating.) Did you have dry weather during silking? Corn needs contstant water due to its shallow roots; we use a soaker hose. Hope this helps identify the problem and solution.
