Corn

Overview

Corn is more widely grown than any other Georgia crop. Yields were low until 1948 when hybrids better adapted to Southern growing conditions were developed.

In 2008, Georgia produced 43.4 million bushels of corn for grain and 810 thousand tons of corn for silage. This corn is primarily used for animal feed and is not for human consumption.

Most of the corn production in Georgia occurs in the southern counties. In 2009, corn made up 10.8 percent of row and forage crops.
