Corn

Corn (lat. Zea) is a genus of plants of the family of cereals (Poaceae), which includes six species [4]. However, in culture, the genus is represented by a single species of Zea mays, cultivated throughout the world on an industrial scale and is an important food, fodder and industrial culture.

Corn is a tall annual herb that reaches a height of 3 m (in exceptional cases up to 6 m or more), with a well-developed root system. At the lower nodes of the stem can form air bearing roots.
The stem is erect, up to 7 cm in diameter, without a cavity inside (unlike most other cereals).
The leaves are large, linear-lanceolate, up to 10 cm wide and 1 m long, with a vagina covering the stem.
Spikelets with staminate and pistillate flowers are collected in various inflorescences or in separate parts of one inflorescence. Staminate flowers are collected in two spikelets, one is almost sedentary, the other is on the stem, and the spikelets are gathered in the apical whisk. Spikelets with pistillate flowers sit in rows of 6-16 flowers on a thick, fleshy axis of the cob, which leaves the leaf axils in the middle part of the stem. The stigma is long, filiform, at the end of a bilobed. During flowering, the stigmas of all spikelets hang in the form of a bundle of vaginal leaves surrounding the ear.
Fruit - grain.
