Those unfamiliar with agriculture may have only basic ideas about how crops are grown. In this Lesson, we introduce general concepts such as cropping systems and crop adaptation, leading to specifics on the requirements of growing corn. We demonstrate the complexities and choices that farmers make when growing corn, such as variety selection, when to plant, tillage, amendments, pest (insect and weed) control, and harvest. We will learn what happens to the corn after it is harvested. Click on links below to access modules.
