My bees have been extremely busy for the last three weeks and appear to be going towards a big field of maize. Do they get anything from the maize or not?

Maize pollen is supposed to be a pale beige colour and my bees are certainly brining a lot of pollen like that in at the moment. Could well be maize although of course the crop is no good for nectar.
