General
"Amazing Maize: The Science, History, and Culture of Corn"

Visitors trace the global spread of the crop following Christopher Columbus' travels, including its social impact in Africa and Europe. Visitors return to the shores of America to explore the push to improve productivity and the rise of hybrid corn. The final stop on the journey highlights the modern technology used to improve and grow the crop. This program is presented by the Indiana Corn Marketing Council.
