Maize (Zea mays) is of tropical Mexican origin, used worldwide as human food, animal and poultry feed and finds diversified uses in a large number of industrial products. Maize is the third most important crop after rice (Oryza sativa) and wheat (Triticum aestivum). It is grown over an area of 139 million ha. The USA is the leading producer followed by China, Brazil, Mexico, France, Argentina, Italy, India, Indonesia, South Africa and Canada (FAOSTAT, 2001). Maize is also important in subsistence-level farming.
