  • Agriculture - Poor corn pollination

    Corn has been a staple food for centuries.  It was first cultivated by Indian peoples in Central America; in fact, the adoption of agriculture and the art of cultivating gave way to the grand cities of the Aztec and Mayans.   What would the world be without corn and potatoes, both of which were first cultivated in Central America?
