What is the purpose of corn broom?

Corn brooms are what most people think of as the basic household broom. Models that are shown below are either a combination of yucca fiber and corn fibers, or all 100% corn. These brooms are strictly for dry sweeping and are available in very small to a large warehouse size sweep area.

In 1797, the quality of brooms changed when Levi Dickenson , a farmer in Hadley, Massachusetts, made a broom for his wife, using the tassels of sorghum, a grain he was growing for the seeds. His wife spread good words around town, creating demand for Dickenson's sorghum brooms.
