Maize is a staple food and one of the most important food crops in many parts of the world, with total production surpassing that of wheat or rice. Maize production is used for corn ethanol, animal feed and other maize products, such as corn starch and corn syrup. The six major types of corn are popcorn, flour corn, sweet corn, flint corn, dent corn and pod corn.
