Corn that is higher in oil, corn with a better balance of protein - that's something farmers can look forward to. The new improvements will be useful. But they're not as spectacular as they sound. Higher oil content, better proteins can't be seen in the field or in the crib. Farmers are apt to be disappointed if they expect too much.
