Iowa is America’s largest producer of corn. According to the Iowa Corn website Iowa produces roughly three times as much corn as Mexico annually. You might be wondering just how much corn Iowa produces. Well in 2014 Iowa farmers produced about 2.4 billion bushels of corn on 13.2 million acres of land. The total amount of land devoted to farming in Iowa is 30.8 million acres which means about 43% of Iowa’s farm land is devoted to corn.

I will end this post with a corny corn joke.
