One of our biggest misconceptions – 99% of the corn grown in Illinois is field corn (a grain) that we feed to livestock of use for ethanol. The rest of the corn crop is sweet corn (a vegetable) that you eat with butter and salt in the summer or out of a can in the winter.

IL farmer Paul Taylor explains the difference from the field in this video!
