What is Popcorn? How is it grown and harvested? How does it pop?

  • Popcorn has more protein than any other cereal grain. It also has more iron than eggs or roast beef. It has more fiber than pretzels or potato chips                                                                                                 
  • Americans eat around 17 billion quarts of popcorn every year. This amount would fill the Empire State Building 18 times                                                                                                                                         
  • Most of the popcorn eaten around the world is grown in the United States                                                 
  • As the popcorn plant grows, the stalk will reach approximately eight feet in height and produce long, green leaves. Popcorn requires 18-24 inches of water during the growing season. As the plant grows, it begins to produce ears of corn, covered with a green husk

  • Most of the world's popcorn is grown in the United States corn belt of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska and Ohio. Each spring, farmers use a corn planter to place the popcorn seeds about 1½ inches deep and 6 inches apart in the soil. That's nearly 28,000 seeds per acre
