{Detasseling}

A post part of the continuing effort to get some of my video work onto the blog.  This was from a little while ago. I had always been curious about what detasseling was and why it was so important.  Not only is it important for farmers to create their hybrid corn, but it’s an annual rite of passage for many area kids.  The ‘summer job’ of summer jobs, especially for kids who can’t drive themselves.
