What's in it for me? You will learn about the amazing corn plant. The project is divided into three divisions:
- Beginner: first and second years (ages 10-11)
- Intermediate: third, forth and fifth years (ages 12-14)
- Advanced: sixth year and beyond (ages 15 and above)
What can I learn? You can learn about how the corn plants works, the pests that attack corn, uses of corn and the safety practices when growing, harvesting, and storing corn. In the advanced levels you will learn about hybrid corn, the types and sources of nutrients for corn, soil erosion, producing and comparing hybrids, and planting and growing corn crops.
