      The United States of America is the top country by maize production in the world. As of , maize production in the United States of America was , thousand tonnes that accounts for % of the world's maize production. The top 5 countries (others are China, Brazil, Argentina, and Ukraine) account for % of it. The world's total maize production was estimated at million.

The bulk (97%) of the total production come from two major provinces, NWFP, accounting for 57% of the total area and 68% of total production. Punjab contribute 38% acreage with 30% of total maize grain production. Very little maize % is produced in the province of Sindh and Balochistan.

The two provinces account for 84 per cent of the country's total maize production-- up from million tons in to around three million tons in Maize production in NWFP has drastically.

The book is delightful to read Maize production in NWFP book is supplemented with a large selection of literature references. very useful for teachers, students and non-specialists, in addition to maize researchers and breeders as well.

it is an excellent book, produced at the right time.” (Ralf G. This book will be a useful reference for students, scientists, technologists, and manufacturers who are involved in any facet of maize production and utilization.

Corn, (Zea mays), also called Indian corn or maize, cereal plant of the grass family and its edible grain. The domesticated crop originated in the Americas and is one of the most widely distributed of the world’s food crops.

Corn is used as livestock feed, as human food, as biofuel, and as raw material in industry. Approximately 8,0 million tons of maize grain are produced in South Africa annually on approximately 3,1 million ha of land.

Half of the production consists of white maize, for human food consumption. Maize needs to mm of water per season, which is mainly acquired from the soil moisture reserves. Ab0 kg of grain are produced for. Maize, thus serves as an important source of fodder supply. In terms of area allocation, maize is the second largest crop in the Province.

At the national level, the NWFP has a very important position in the production of maize. On the yearly average offor example, nearly one million hectares of land was devoted to the maize crop at.

Ali () conducted a study on sugarcane production, yields per acre, and prices of sugarcane over the time period from The study found that the production of sugarcane had a fluctuating behaviour during the study time period.

Asif. al., (), found. Unhusked maize (corn) ear means a mature whole ear (full maturity without the removal of its leafy outer covering). Husked maize (corn) ear means an ear as referred to in Section with the removal of its leafy outer covering but un-shelled.

Maize (corn) kernel means a whole shelled grain excluding seed for planting. Maize grows best on deep, well-drained, fertile soils, and where total seasonal rainfall exceeds mm. Maize is reasonably tolerant to soil acidity, but if the soil is very acid, liming will improve the soil and enhance maize yields.

Maize is susceptible to both drought and water-logging. relating to all aspects of maize production in the hunid and sub-~umid tropics of Africa. It is designed to senre as a basic reference document for participants in IITA's maize training courses.

Our sincere thanks go to the follo~l7ing scientists yTho contributed chapters to the manual (by alphabetical order). Getting maximum benefits from maize (Zea mays L.) lies not in reducing N rate and its number of splits but in lowering cost per unit production through higher experiments were conducted on maize at the New Developmental Research Farm of North West Frontier Province (NWFP) Agricultural University Peshawar during summer (Y 1) and (Y 2) to investigate the effects of.

total production comes from two major provinces, NWFP, accounting for 57% of the total area and 68% of total pro-duction. Punjab contributes 38% acreage with 30% of total maize grain production. Very little maize (%) is pro-duced in Sindh and Balochistan provinces.

Though not in-cluded in Pakistan official statistics maize is an important. In the North West Frontier Province (NWFP), maize was sown on around million hectares with production of nearly million tons and an average yield of only t ha −1 reflecting the high proportion of rainfed cropping in the province (Government of Pakistan, ).

There are two seasons of maize production; the spring season crop is. Maize is a staple cereal after wheat and rice. It is an important source of carbohydrate, protein, iron, vitamin B and minerals for many poor people in the world.

In developing countries maize is a major source of income in resource-poor farmers. As maize is used both as silage and as crop residue and the grains of maize are usually used for food, starch and oil extraction industrially, the.

MATERIALS AND METHODS. A set of 28 sub-tropical maize hybrids received from CIMMYT, Mexico (Table 1) were grown at experimental farm of Cereal Crops Research Institute (CCRI), Pirsabak, Nowshera, NWFP Pakistan along with 2 local well established and improved checks during Kharif growing of these 30 entries were sown in plots having two rows, 5 m long m apart.

The province wise area and production of all fodder crops in Pakistan for the year are given in Table The Punjab province produces % of the total production of fodder crops in the country, followed by Sindh, NWFP and Balochistan, which produceand % fodder respectively.

Maize farmers in Bihar, who account for over 80 per cent of India’s million tonnes (mt) of annual production of rabi maize, are facing difficulties in selling their produce as prices have gone down to Rs 1, per quintal, much lower than Rs 2, per quintal last year and the government’s minimum support price (MSP) of Rs 1, per quintal for Understanding the status and future outlook of maize is crucial.

The book is organized into five chapters. Chapter 1 presents the maize production aspects including trends in production and productivity levels, characteristics of maize producers, technology use, and the economics of its production.

Chapter 2. Maize (Zea mays L.) is the second most important crop after wheat in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan but its yield per unit area is very low.

The average yield in the Punjab province ( kg ha-1) was far better than that of NWFP ( kg ha-1). Maize is a predominant staple crop in sub-saharan Africa. Ethiopia is among the major maize producers in Africa and ranked third next to South Africa and Nigeria.

The per capita consumption of maize in Ethiopia is about 60 kg per annum. Maize is an important crop to many African countries contributing to a significant daily energy intake.
