Monocultures are destined for failure. Corn has been bred for high sugar content to make HFCS and other byproducts. The farmer who grows a variety of crops (and multiple varieties or each) will fare much better than those who just plant GMO corn.
The prarie was made for a variety of grasses with deep roots that do well in drought. grazing animals (from the mammoth, bison and now cows, goats and sheep live very well on it.
I just hope these fantastic soil don't dry up and blow away like Oklahoma.
