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]


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.


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


Behind the scenesEdit

According to the Vault 94 greenhouse terminals, the corn seen in-game is of the species Zea mays mays (maize).[3]
