Is the word "korn" used for the actual grain "corn", or is it just a general term for various types of grain?
What would be the color in a sentence like "korngule hår"?

    "Korn" is used as a common term for wheat, oats, barley, rye and similar types of grain, and also used for grain in a more general sense (for example "sandkorn", "pepperkorn"). The grain that is called "corn" in American English is called "mais" in Norwegian. (I think it is "maize" in British English).

    "Korngul" is this colour:

    Thank you for your answer, that's what I thought. I have seen it translated to English as corn, and it really seemed out of context, because the Norwegian climate isn't appropriate for this crop.
