Maize also known as corn in some parts of the world is a cereal grain and is recognized as the queen of cereals. It is a member of the grass family poaceae. Maize is a type of an annual growing plant with high productivity rate, which also has exceptional important property of geographic adaptability, which has helped cultivation of maize to spread all over the world. Total production of maize is third highest amongst all the crop production and maize has become the largest planted crop in many countries. Although maize is one of the leading crops, very little part of this is being consumed directly by humans, most of the consumption of maize is in the form of animal feed. Maize has a wide range of applications in chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, and food and animal feed industry.
The world is moving toward the conventional energy resources. Plants, which are high in starch or sugar contents are fermented to produce ethanol, which can be used directly as fuel replacement for petrol and diesel. Maize is the main source of ethanol considering high starch contents. Corn ethanol is produced by ethanol distillation and fermentation. This rise in usage of maize in the production of biofuels drives the growth of the market. Although corn is great as a protein and as a food, excessive use of corn can also create health disorders and problems such as allergic reactions, causing bloating & flatulence and is risky for diabetic patients.
Organic corn is a wonderful and very healthy addition to the diets based on whole food crops. Thus, there is an increase in demand for organic maize in the feed industry, which creates lucrative opportunities in the maize market.
