At our nearly hill top farm we have problems with corn blowing down. Some of the measures we take include twine over each row. As the corn comes up, each stalk will be on one side or the other and the twine connects them together when the winds blow. The paths have been cultivated frequently, but I leave weeds in the row which are overshadowed by the corn, but help hold the roots together in the soil. Most people will need to do neither of these things. In a smaller garden planting corn in hills rather than rows also resists wind damage.
