    Corn is becoming increasingly popular for use in just about everything. It is taking over crops all of the United States. The environmental costs just to crow corn are huge. Farmers have to use pesticides and grow their crops at an alarming rate in order to meet demand. Corn also take a lot of water to grow and if the crop fails, it has to be thrown out because it is often a type of corn that can’t be directly consumed by humans or animals. The crops increased need for nutrients actually created “dead zones” where the land is so dried out and the top soil is so over used, that it can no longer support any crops.
