Lance DeBar 10/11/17 AG 101-09 Professor Earle King Corn Assignment 1) Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis move to Iowa to investigate why statistics say that they were going to die earlier than any generation. While in Iowa, both Cheney and Ellis wanted to analyze the consumption of their diets. Also, while in Iowa, Cheney and Ellis want to plant a single acre of corn to see what the corn is eventually used forb 2) Corn is contained in all types of foods. The most common source of corn is found in vegetables, such as corn on the cobb. Also, all food that contain high fructose corn syrup, such as soda and candy, contain corn. Additionally, cereals, such as Corn Flakes, Kix, and Corn Chex, contain corn because of the dry corn products used to make the product. Lastly, one of the products that contains corn is whiskey because Canadian Whiskey is made of 90% corn. 3) First, they strategize by plotting out the acre of land that they plan on using to plant all the corn and use tractors to plant the seeds in rows. Next, anhydrous ammonia fertilizer is used to make weeds go disappear. The local farmers help Chaney and Ellis plant the seeds of corn and to spread the fertilizer all across their acre of land.
4) The only government assistance that Chaney and Ellis receive throughout their journey is that the government will only pay the two men $28 when the acre of corn is completely finished growing.
