Corn Pops on Stalk

According to a story in the News-Enterprise, a Hardin County farmer is reporting corn has been popping while still growing on the stalk in his cornfield.

"Star Mills farmer Patrick Preston sent a photo of the burst kernels that look like partially popped popcorn to the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service.

Hardin County Extension agent Doug Shepherd told The News Enterprise he's never seen popped kernels before."

So is this a global warming thing? Or a genetically-modified Monsanto thing? Or just an isolated freak of nature?
