Before discussing the methods of the culture of corn we must know something of the plant itself. We must, in fact, be intimately acquainted with the plant and all its parts, their structure and something of the functions they perform. The method of growth must also be known in order to develop the desirable characters and to gradually eliminate the more undesirable characters. This circular is divided into dive divisions. Each division takes up a part of the corn plant and describes it in detail.
