Description
Maize is the native grain crop of the New World where it has been cultivated in a widerange of environmental conditions from sea-level to over 3000m, from Chile to southernparts of Canada for more than 5000 years. Maize belongs to a small highly specialised tribe.It is a large annual with a single stout stem, usually 2-3m high (but can vary from 1-6m),with approximately 14 nodes. Leaves have long broad lance late blades and are large at 30-150cm by 5-15cm. The terminal panicle bears only male flowers and is called the tassel; itcan be up to 40cm long. The female inflorescence is ear borne in the axils of middle leavesapproximately half way up the stem, 1-3 per plant. Each ear consists of a short stout axis orcob. The ear and the grains are sheathed in closely packed leaves which completely enclosethe upper fertile part of the ear and originate at the base of the lower nodes of the cob. Thespike is very dense with a number of vertical rows of very much reduced

After pollination the silks wither
