Growing Beetroot, also Beets

Any tips for growing beets in the south? Also why does it say not to grow them near corn? I had thought the corn could provide some shade and lessen the heat. Thanks!

I don't know the reason but if planted beside the corn and it shades the beetroot then the beetroot won't receive enough sunlight and you will have weak thin plants. Corn needs sun and heat.
