corn plants grew like gangbusters after the massive rains that were enjoyed a few months ago. Then, the plants appeared to turn a shade of yellow, and then a dried up brown. This is visible all across south Texas. The only AG crops that seem to be doing well are sorghum and cotton. What happened?

There's sweet corn and field corn. The dried up corn you see is field corn.

Field corn is used for livestock feed and ethanol among other things. It's not the ears of corn you see at the supermarket.

I didn't think that it was consumable for humans. It was the first time in several years where they actually planted corn here. Then, the corn just rivaled up and died. ;(
