ORN has been and is the main support of the
Nation. Grown in every State of the Union, it
exceeds any other crop in acreage, production, value,
and multiplicity of uses. By its wide adaptation and
natural productiveness it has abundantly supplied
While the increasing needs were easily met by
planting more acres, little thought was given to acre
yields. Now, as the limit of acres and labor for
growing corn is approaching and the demand for
corn rapidly increasing, more attention is being
given to methods of increasing the yield per acre,
the present average of which is very low.
Acre yields can be greatly increased by improving
the conditions needed at different periods of the year
by both the 'seed and the growing crop. Such im-
proved conditions as have been determined by the
experiences of farmers and by experimentation are
discussed in the following pages. The acre yield is
beginning to be increased. It can easily be very
much increased. Those who produce two bushels
where but one grew before reap a greater profit and
are great benefactors of the Nation.
