Did you know that grains are the edible seeds of specific grasses? We as humans get about 48% on average of our calories, or food energy, from grains! Grains also can be used to feed livestock and manufacture cooking oils, fuels, cosmetics and even hand sanitizer.
True cereal grains include wheat, oat, rice, corn, barley, sorghum, rye and millet.Grains are annual plants, which means they have only one growing season per year and yield one crop.
Let’s talk about a few grains we use every day!

Farmers have long understood that developing a community based in mutual cooperation lays the foundation for their own success. They know that if everyone does well, they will do well. Now, in the digital age, we have new ways to connect, and new ways to build community. But the core principle still holds true, a rising tide lifts all boats. That’s one of many reasons why Corteva supports agricultural education through the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and the My American Farm platform.
