  • Corn, or maize, is one of the world’s most widely cultivated cereal grains and a staple food for many cultures.
  • It is an annual plant that produces large, edible grains (kernels) arranged on a cob.
  • Corn comes in various varieties, including sweet corn for human consumption and field corn for animal feed and industrial uses.
Cron Crop characteristics
  • Height: Corn plants vary in height, typically ranging from 6 to 12 feet, depending on the variety and growing conditions.
  • Leaves: Corn plants have long, narrow leaves that alternate along the stem.
  • Flowers: Corn produces separate male and female flowers on the same plant. The female flowers develop into the cob, while the male flowers produce pollen.
  • Seeds (Kernels): The edible part of corn is the seed or kernel, which is found on the cob. Each kernel is composed of three parts: the endosperm, germ, and pericarp.

Varieties

  • Field Corn: Field corn is primarily used as animal feed and for industrial purposes, such as making cornmeal, corn oil, and corn syrup. It has a higher starch content and is less sweet than sweet corn.
