Seed Corn Harvest

Corn kernels are the seeds of maize. Though technically a grain, maize kernels are used in cooking as a vegetable or starch. One ear of corn contains roughly 800 kernels in 16 rows. One hundred bushels of corn can contain upwards of 7,280,000 kernels. Corn is a popular food throughout the world in many forms; it is used in breakfast cereals in the Western world (as corn flakes) and it is a grain that can be eaten raw off the cob, although it is usually preferred cooked. In the United States, for economic reasons such as government subsidies, corn is the basis of many products, in the form of high fructose corn syrup, in favor of cane sugar. The use of corn and other grains as a renewable biofuel may have environmental and cost benefits, compared to other energy source, and may create additional forms of revenue for farmers and other economic industries. However, the use of corn as a fuel stock may increase the price of corn and have adverse effects on corn as a food stock. It should also be noted that, although it is assumed that biofuels have a small carbon footprint and are therefore more environmentally friendly than other fuel sources, their production and distribution may actually have greater environmental impact than fossil fuels.
