It’s not Dying, it’s Drying!
The fact of the matter is 99% of the corn grown in Nebraska is not the sweet corn on the cob you would eat at your Fourth of July barbecue. The corn that appears to be dying in the fields is actually drying in the fields. The moisture content needs to be drained from field corn. This can be done in a special dryer, but it costs money, so why not let nature do the work? It makes sense to me now.
Dent corn, or field corn is used in places I have never really thought about in the past. I would like to share just a few I found interesting.
