How To Grow Corn And Get Increased Yields

Corn (Zea mays), also known as maize, is a popular grain, fodder, and industrial crop characterized by versatility and high yield. Its grain is a valuable concentrated feed for all farm animals and birds. Corn plant is also used as a food crop. Flour, cereals, flakes, and other products are made from its grain. Besides, corn grain is a raw material for the production of alcohol, starch, and glucose. Both the stalks and the husks of the cobs are used to make paper, glue, paints, and synthetic resin. Corn plant cultivation is also of a great organizational and economic importance. Since corn field is sown and harvested later in the season compared to other spring crops, it allows for making better use of labor and agricultural machinery.
