For a considerable number of years more attention has been given by farmers to the production and improvement of corn than to any other grain or general farm crop, yet for no 10-year period has the average corn yield of the United States exceeded 28 bushels per acre. No State has averaged for any year over 54 bushels per acre, yet in practically every section of the United States yields of more than 100 bushels per acre have been produced. With the rapid spread of the work of boys' clubs the need of the study of corn in the schools has come to be better appreciated. The purpose of this bulletin is to furnish lessons for developing the real educational value of this study.
