Tall Corn

It’s back to school time in central Indiana, and one of my favorite parts of going back to school was summer break show and tell. One of our favorite things to show and tell here at Beck's is our tall corn. The tallest corn in the state, as a matter of fact. Beck's has entered the Indiana State Fair Tall Corn Contest in each of the past three years, and has won each year. This year’s plant is an impressive 25 feet, 4.25 inches tall from the ground to the tip of the tassel. This corn isn’t the high-yielding hybrid corn adapted to the Midwest that we spend most of our time with – this is a special exotic line from South America.
