Synopsis

Synopsis

In each of 4 years 14 sweet corn hybrids were harvested at 3 successive stages of maturity. Although quality was not related to yield, it was highly and negatively associated with deviations from 75, 76, 77 and 78% moisture at harvest. An average of 1.5% moisture was lost per day during the canning period with an average of 14.7 thermal units required for each percent of moisture loss. Moisture loss was more consistent when expressed by thermal units instead of calendar days as indicated by the respective coefficients of variability.
