Description

Maize (zea mays) also known as corn is one among the profitable crops in Nigeria, it is a cereal plant of the Gramieae family of grasses that today constitutes the most widely distributed food in the world. When maize cultivation started in Nigeria, it was first cultivated as a subsistence crop, in small quantities for family survival only. As time went on maize farming changed its face and operations from subsistence farming to commercial farming. Today maize is planted in larger(commercial) quantities because of its profitability, economic value and the demand for the crop in the market.
