The sweet corn industry in New South Wales is expanding - benefiting from increasing domestic consumption, export development and import replacement. Also, it is an attractive crop for producers to grow because:
the plant grows quickly and is considered a valuable rotational crop;
farming operations can be mechanised.

Most sweet corn in New South Wales is grown for the processing sector, ending up on the supermarket shelves as products, which include canned kernels, frozen cobetts and frozen kernels.

Planting usually commences in spring when soil temperatures reach 14–16°C. In warmer coastal and inland districts, a longer growing season allows two crops to be planted each year compared with one crop in the cooler Tablelands and Slopes districts.
