Answer: Corn is generally wind-pollinated; when the silks have formed, pollen grains from the tassles fall down onto them. Each silk is attached to a potential corn grain on the forming ear. The use of netting would only affect pollination if movement of the tassles were impaired.<br><br>The age of corn seed would determine the germination rate and vigor of the plant. If a corn plant from an old seed grows to maturity, the plant should produce ears of corn.
