Corn: America's #1 Crop / by Brett Holman

If you ever drive through the middle of the country you will see a lot of this. It's interesting to learn about who grows it, what it's used for and how the American farming system works. Over half of this crop is used for animal feed (58%), 25% for export, only 17% for both human food and industrial use (ethanol).
