If your question pertains to Chapter 11, the only crop mentioned is cotton.

For nitrates are not the land, nor phosphates; and the length of fiber in the cotton is not the land.

In Chapter One, both cotton and corn are mentioned.

"Ever' year," said Joad. "Ever' year I can remember, we had a good crop comin' an' it never come. Grampa says she was good the first five plowin's, while the wild grass was still in her." The road dropped down a little hill and climbed up another rolling hill.
