Planting+
Maize does not need any prior treatment but soaking overnight in lukewarm water will encourage germination.
Care+
Water extra only in dry periods - this is important if you want healthy corn. Keep the bed weed-free - do this by hand and do not use a hoe as sweetcorn has surface roots that are easily damaged. Sweetcorn has low disease levels, but one thing they dislike is waterlogged soil.
Specifics+
Maize has been a staple in Latin America for thousands of years and was brought to Europe by Columbus. Nowadays, there are 3 varieties that are grown in large quantities: corn cobs for feeding cattle (so, not the kernels) maize for cattle feed (whole plant is used) and sweetcorn.

Maize is a type of grass (Gramineae).

Corn cob plants can grow 1.2 to 2.5 metres tall. When they are this tall, the spears of corn plant grow male flowers. The cobs at the lower level are actually female flowers. The long threads catch the pollen from the males as it is blown by the wind over the females, so, the more plants there are, the more certain the corn will be pollinated.

A maize kernel is mostly made up of food storage for the germ in the seed and is itself mostly corn-starch made from the sugar in the kernel. So the trick is to harvest your sweetcorn cobs before the sugar turns to corn-starch.

Corn plant life like legumes (such as beans and peas) is synonymous with nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the soil. The advantage to that is that there is then more nitrogen in the soil after a harvest than there was before - a good fertiliser for next year's crop(s).
