Bella Parade '13 : Post # 20

Hiya all!
Yesterday's color was LEAD! Most of you got it right!!! Except one I think.

Bella Solids Lead Yardage SKU# 9900-283

And here's today's color!

And here are the hints
1. I am a large grain plant domesticated by indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica in prehistoric times.
2. I am a town in Kansas, USA! But I am one of the largest produces of USA - 332 million metric tons grown annually!!! Whoa!
3. _ A I _ E

For the monochromatic combination, I have used Ivory and Moss
