What to Work for in Corn

The ear at the left shows corn well filled out at the butt. The picture at the right shows the same ear well filled at the tip. The presence of well filled kernels at both extremities, proves that this corn is of good hereditary strain, and also that it has been fully pollenized. Ears of corn used for seed should always be carefully examined with reference to this quality of bearing well filled kernels at either end. The kernels in the middle should be well filled, as a matter of course.
