The corn farmers of Nebraska look to the future with vision and investment in the many possibilities for new uses for corn. Corn is a sustainable crop used for feed, fuel, food and fiber and has a major role in our state’s economy and feeding a growing world. The organization to carry out this vision to create more demand for corn as a feed, fuel, food and fiber is the Nebraska Corn Board.
Corn has been part of Nebraska’s history for more than a thousand years. The crop was cultivated and hybridized from its birthplace in Mesoamerica up north into what is now Canada, and from ocean to ocean. Humans and plants had adapted brilliantly one to another; humans crafting their culture and calendar to meet the needs of the corn and corn producing in return a cornerstone food and feedstuff.
