Corn have more benefits.
The human population on Earth has increased at an astounding rate ever since the Industrial Evolution. New technologies and systems of agriculture have allowed the human race to keep building their numbers, but when will the carrying capacity of Earth be reached? Better yet, how can the large populations of the future sustain themselves by the Earth they walk on and still manage to preserve the land for future generations? The answer is not as clear-cut as the average person thinks: instead of using more farm land to increase agricultural production, environmentally-safe agriculture efficiency must be increased in the already-cultivated areas of the Earth. The world can continue to grow and thrive with a growing population by utilizing more agricultural product for food instead of other uses, by reducing waste in the food crops that are being produced, and by decreasing yield gaps.
The U.S Department of Agriculture stated that 85% of corn is affected (approx 4.2bn bushels lost to the drought) along with 80% of land needed to grow soy beans and 70% of land used for cattle has also been affected. The situation the drought has caused has been classed as extreme.
