i have two blocks of sweetcorn, the mini pop is looking green, healthy and happy, but the main crop is yellow and sickly looking.
The mini ones are surrounded by a glass windbreak to provide shelter, whereas the mains are fighting for themselves.... as previously mentioned it must be down to the cold days and nights.
If u feed them am sure they will green up.... have just dosed mine in comfrey liquid... just hope it doesnt affect the beetroot growing between the plants!!!

My sweetcorn (planted in very light sandy soil) was looking a tad yellow with all of the rain washing the nutrients out of the soil, coupled with the lack of sun so I put some fresh bunny poo on and they're looking much better; not damaged by the ammonia at all.

I also feed with an organic seaweed feed as the soil (which can't really be called soil at all to be honest) is so light and sandy that it drains instantly, leaving the crops with little to hold onto the moisture.
