From the Paper:

"Basically what I found out after doing this paper is that the Corn Belt is one of the most important areas in the United States. It is responsible for producing the corn (maize) that feeds the majority of animals that feed our nation. Without the Corn Belt I would say that our nation would find it quite difficult to survive. Also organic farming in general is amazing. Instead of using harsh chemicals and genetically enhanced formulas to produce corn, these farmers find safe and effective ways to grow and produce mass amounts of corn without risking the general publics' health."
