Corn grows into stalks for about 95-103 days at which time it has produced ears of new kernels (about 800 per ear), which is then harvested to either be ground into food, fed to cattle or used in renewable fuels such as ethanol. Corn is grown all over the world, particularly in the United States, Brazil, and China.
