Background[edit | edit source]

This section is transcluded from Corn. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Corn is a cereal grain first domesticated by indigenous peoples in southern Mexico about 10,000 years ago. The hardy plant grows into a tall, leafy stalk, which produces both pollen and fruit. The maize fruit is called a corn kernel and grows in rows inside ears produced by the stalk. As a water-efficient crop that produces highly nutritious fruit that can be processed into food, ethanol, livestock feed, oil, and more, maize has become a staple of wasteland agriculture in both regular and mutated varieties.[1]

For example, New California, with its hot, arid climate, relies on the cultivation of vast fields of maize capable of thriving in the post-nuclear soil. In fact, the economic might of places like the Hub was built upon the tilled fields full of maize stalks, processed into countless process necessary for the post-nuclear civilization to thrive.[2]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The player character can plant and harvest corn as a food and component source.

When affected by an intercontinental ballistic missile event, corn will turn into aftershock stalk, which can be harvested for raw cobalt flux.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Corn can be harvested and planted using fertilizer. It is a component of vegetable starch, which in turn can be scrapped into adhesive.
