PLYMOUTH â€” The cornfield looked empty, just a mass of stalks bending under the sunâ€™s heat.

They were in the middle of a long morning of detassling corn â€” and it was time for a break.
â€ś(The job) has itâ€™s ups and downs,â€ť said Derrick Lee, one of the detasslers, Thursday. â€śEspecially on days like today. Itâ€™s hot!â€ť
