All About Popcorn

From Seed to Snack

The majority of the popcorn grown and sold worldwide comes from the Midwest, in an area known as the Corn Belt of the United States.

In the Midwest, the summers are long and hot, which allow enough time for growing the crop. The soil is deep and fertile and rich in organic material, providing plants with the needed nutrients to grow. The Midwest gets enough water through regular rainfall or with irrigation systems from nearby rivers, lakes, and wells. The flat land makes it easier when planting and harvesting crops.
