Corn 1: The Miracle of Corn
CINE Golden Eagle Award
"Recommended. That one kernel of corn produces a mature plant boasting 600 or more kernels is vividly revealed in this ably-produced, smoothly edited program. Well-modulated narration and non-intrusive music back up the nicely paced program." -Booklist
Corn is cultivated all around the world and, by weight, is the most widely grown crop in the world. Corn on the cob, popcorn, Corn Flakes, corn syrup; it's amazing how many products come from maize, what we call corn. It truly is a miracle crop. Thanks to patient producers who filmed in a cornfield for an entire summer to capture a kernel of corn coming to life, this award-winning program allows viewers to visualize this miracle by combining time-lapse sequences, cinematography, and clear footage in a descriptive introduction to seed germination, pollination, photosynthesis, and plant maturation.
Corn 2: The Hybrid-Corn Miracle
CINE Golden Eagle Award
As learned in the award-winning program, Corn: The Miracle Crop, corn is a remarkable crop. Now this award-winning program goes a step further using superb animation and in-field demonstrations to explain the genetics and techniques of inbreeding corn, chronicling the development of hybrid seed corn and its role in the productivity of the modern corn plant. Today, practically all corn grown in the United States is from hybrid seed. Produced by Iowa State University. 02/10DE IJSCA 20 min.
