Texas A&M students build massive corn maze

The Texas A&M Agronomy club has opened a corn maze and pumpkin patch.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Just in time for Halloween, a local corn maze is back to celebrate not only the 140th birthday of Texas A&M but to teach locals about Agri-life.

The Agronomy Club cut their annual Texas A&M logo in the stocks, but for the birthday, they also cut down the word fearless. Out at the maze it may look like your typical corn stock field, but the rain washed out almost half of the corn seeds so they planted Sorghum. A plant that looks just like a corn stock, but does not produce corn. 
 
"One of our main goals for this year and last year when we started the corn maze is to educate the public on our food and where it comes from so this offers a really unique opportunity to show people that there is more than meets the eye they look like the same plant but they are both different functionally and practically," Agronomy Club member said.
 
The club members will be explaining the differences between the corn and sorghum this Saturday for their opening day.
Tickets to get into the maze are seven dollars and they also have a pumpkin patch as well.
