Rural Dictionary: Pollination

Posted: 7/10/2018

On a crop farm you might hear the farmer talking about pollination or flowering during the summer months. These processes are very important because this is the first step in the actual production of the corn and soybean crops by developing the flowers into grains. Usually lasts about one week and can be affected by a number of factors, such as the drought or heat stress. This is why July is so important to the production of grains.

Corn Pollination (noun) : The transfer of pollen from an anthers to the silks.
