Corn Trivia

Last weekend, we took the family to a corn maze and in the process, learned some things about corn:

Corn is grown on every continent except Antarctica.

Sweetener produced from one bushel of corn will sweeten more than 400 cans of Coca Cola.

One ear of corn has about 800 kernels. There are about 1300 kernels in one pound.

The kernels on an ear of corn are actually seeds.

Corn is used to produce alcohol fuel.
