Why is my corn leaning over?

Corn grows buttress roots and suckers to stay upright. Shallow or undeveloped roots will cause the plants to lean over in rain or wind. Use a balanced fertilizer to grow strong roots. Check for soil pests that would stunt roots. Heavy rains and soil erosion can also undermine corn plants.
