hand pollinating corn

14 years ago

I know this has been asked before, but I couldn't find a specific answer on the FAQ. I need help with terms for the different parts of the corn plant and detailed instructions on how to do it.

What is the top part of the stalk called? You know, that part with the pollen on it. And when I pollinate, which part do I dust the pollen onto? Is it where the tassel comes out of the stalk or the tips of the tassel?
