Maize is an economically important crop, along with rice and wheat. It is the premier cash crop in the United States. In addition to being used as grain and fodder, it is also used extensively in pharmaceutical production as well as a commodity feedstock for other organic chemical products like rubber, ethanol and plastic. Apart from its economic importance, More...
