It's Time to Rethink America's Corn System

It's Time to Rethink America's Corn System

Jonathan Foley, Ensia
Nothing dominates the American landscape like corn.Sprawling across the Midwest and Great Plains, the American Corn Belt is a massive thing. You can drive from central Pennsylvania all the way to western Nebraska, a trip of nearly 1,500 miles, and witness it in all its glory.  No other American crop can match the sheer size of corn.So why do we, as a nation, grow so much corn?http://ensia.com/voices/its-time-to-rethink-americas-corn-system/?viewAll=1
