Corn detassling popular summer job for students

July 25, 2011

PLYMOUTH — The cornfield looked empty, just a mass of stalks bending under the sun’s heat.
A few minutes later, however, a large red tractor became visible over the tops of the corn. Groups of kids, all wearing neon orange hats to shield their face from the sun, jumped off the long arms attached to the tractor, brushing cornstalk remnants off their hands. They were in the middle of a long morning of detassling corn — and it was time for a break.
“(The job) has it’s ups and downs,” said Derrick Lee, one of the detasslers, Thursday. “Especially on days like today. It’s hot!”
