Why is 'corn crop' disallowed as a keyword in this image? It is a common crop in the UK that is harvested at the end of the summer. The grass is known as corn. I suspect corn means corn on the cob in some parts of the world and this may explain it?

Yes Gary, 'corn' means 'maize' for many nations.

For this particular image, the question might be: would someone looking for an illustration of a corn crop be looking for this sort of image? I think maybe not.

I see that as a wheat field, not corn as in Corn on the cob (maize) and I am in the US

From a UK perspective, it would probably be described as corn, and then as either wheat or barley - depending on which it is. If it is being grown for winter forage it might be called a grass crop. Another useful phrase might be cereal crop, bypassing the word 'corn'.

My guess it all depends on where in the world the inspector lives.

Because it isn't corn? I'm not sure why the confusion. Grass isn't corn.

Thanks George, I learned something new today. It also explains why I saw some new images a while back called a corn field and I thought is was a typo.


Again, I think it is because the where the inspector lives.
