In India, maize is the third most important food crop after rice and wheat. The crop contributes to nearly 9% of the national food basket and is also known as queen of cereals, because it has the highest genetic yield potential among cereals. In addition to staple food for human being and quality feed for animals; maize serves as a basic raw material to various industrial products such as starch, oil, protein, alcoholic beverages, food sweeteners, pharmaceuticals, cosmetic, film, textile, gum, package and paper industries.
