Maize needs good soil and is not tolerant of soil compaction, so care must be taken to avoid this problem. Very light sandy soils will give reduced yields. Growing on very heavy clay soils, particularly if they have underlying poor drainage, can delay sowing date and make harvesting difficult as well as causing damage to the soil structure.In Ireland, maize is sown in spring and is grown under two production systems; 1.'without plastic cover' (Uncovered), and 2.
