Corn

While land plants have existed

We don’t just pop it

Corn

Corn is one of the world’s most important crops.
We don’t just pop it and munch it on the cob; corn can be turned into flour and syrup, it is fed to livestock, it is transformed into etahnol and it can even be used to make plastic.
Between 2016 and 2017, about a billion tons Corn
 were produced around the globe, and corn yields more than six percent of all food calories for humans.
