Record demand for corn has required farmers from the five continents to make their best effort in order to place corn as the world’s leading crop.
Corn and products made from corn improve the people’s lives in thousands of little ways. Often, consumers don’t even know corn is present, let alone know the role it plays. But if corn and its products weren’t available, many common products would be less useful, more expensive, even unavailable.
Corn is subject to technological changes because of its high capability of adaptation to processes, that is why it is considered the most studied plant species on the planet.
