Actually no.. quite on the contrary if any. If the farmer grows both cow corn and sweet corn, the way we did it was the sweet corn on the outside 3 or 4 or however many rows, and the cow corn on the inside. It made it easier to pick, and you didn't ruin any cow corn when you tried to harvest it, because the outside was sweet corn which had already been picked.

Additional Info.While it is very occasionally done, as both the answer above and one of the discussion points mention, it is only done in either way (outside or inside the field) on a very small portion of the field -- for the farm family's convenience. If you want high quality sweet corn, it must be planted in a location isolated from field (cow) corn, or any other type of corn, because the other corn's pollen will make the sweet corn kernels go "starchy". The best sweet corn (and what you buy in the can or frozen) is grown in a field all by itself for this reason.

Why do people plant field corn early?

Good question. I think it is mainly to attempt to get a higher yield or an earlier harvest, in spite of the fact that numerous studies have shown that this is, in fact, quite rare. In the US, farmers are also somewhat susceptible to a certain degree of peer pressure. As soon as one farmer in a neighborhood starts, then all his neighbors start getting "itchy" to follow suit. Then their neighbors start, then theirs, etc., until soon everyone in a given area is planting. This is something of a historical leftover from when the planting operation took four to six weeks to complete due to the use of horses and/or small tractors and equipment. US corn farmers are now generally able to complete their planting in about one week per farm, while field conditions allow.

How does gps help with planting crops?

A GPS helps with planting crops because you can follow exact coodrinates. A good GPS system will allow you to be accurate within 5 feet, and a great one within 5 inches. This allows you to plant, accurately, to maximum amount of crops without planting outside the specified area. A GPS also allows for less overlapping on passes through a field which saves a lot of diesel fuel and time for farmers.

Was the three field system fair or corrupt?

The three field system was neither fair nor corrupt. It was not something that can be evaluated in terms of morality or ethics. The three field system was a system for crop rotation under which one third of the land was planted in a spring planting, one third was planted with different crops for in a fall planting, and one third was left fallow. It was more efficient than the previous two field system. It supported more people with the same land use. But it had no inherent fairness or corruption associated with it.
