Pustakers friend, on this occasion the school library will share the article of corn and fruit nutrient content of corn. Corn in particular the fruit is very familiar in our country, even beerbapa areas, such as the NTB makes this corn as their staple. Yup corn was tasty, especially kao roasted corn, wow was delicious.

Corn in particular the fruit is very familiar in our country, even beerbapa areas, such as the NTB makes this corn as their staple.

Zea mays L. is the scientific name of corn, this plant is a plant annuals (annual). A life cycle completed in 80-150 days. The first half of the cycle stage and the second half of the vegetative growth to generative growth phase. Corn plant height varies greatly. Although the corn crop is generally altitude of between 1 meter – 3 meters, there are varieties that can reach a height of 6m. Normal plant height measured from ground level to the top segment before the male flowers. Although some varieties can produce puppies like rice, corn generally does not have this capability.
The female flower of corn cob wrapped in a sort of midrib with hairs. Hair is actually a stalk of corn pistil. Corn root root fibers belonging to reach a depth of 8 m although most are in the range of 2 m. In plants that are mature enough adventitious roots emerging from the books that helped the bottom of the rod supporting the establishment of plants. Corn stalks tall and easily visible, as sorghum and sugarcane, but not like rice or wheat. There are mutants that do not grow rapidly so that the stems of plants form a rosette. Jointed stems. Wrapped in the leaf midrib sections emerging from the book. Corn stalks pretty sturdy, but does not contain much lignin.
Leaves of maize leaf is perfect. Elongated shape. Between the bark and leaves are ligula. Vein parallel to the mother leaves the bones. Leaf surface is slippery and there are some hair. Stoma the corn leaf-shaped halter, which have a typical family of Poaceae. Each stoma is surrounded by epidermal cells of fan-shaped. These structures play an important role in the response of plants respond to water deficit in leaf cells. This type contains a relatively high sugar content, it is usually levied kerana young to be baked or boiled. The hallmark of this type is when the seeds are ripe to be wrinkled. Maize has male flowers and female flowers are separate (diklin) in one plant (monoecious). Each flower has a typical structure of interest rates Poaceae, called florets.
On maize, two florets are limited by a pair of glumae (singular: gluma). Male flowers growing on the top of the plant, a bouquet of flowers (inflorescence). Pollen yellow and smelled peculiar. Female flowers arranged in a cob. Cobs grew out of the book, in between the stem and leaf midrib. In general, a single plant can produce only one cob productive despite having a number of female flowers. Some varieties can produce more than one productive cob, and called the prolific varieties. Corn male flowers tend to be ready for pollination 2-5 days earlier than female flowers (protandri).
Nutritional content of maize
Corn kernels are rich in carbohydrates. Most are on endospermium. Carbohydrate content can reach 80% of the seed dry matter. Carbohydrates in the form of starch is usually a mixture of amylose and amylopectin. On glutinous maize, most or all of the starch is amylopectin. This difference is not much of an effect on nutrient content, but more significant in the processing as food. Sweet corn amylopectin is known to contain lower but has increased fitoglikogen and sucrose. Corn nutrient content per 100 grams of material is: Calories: 355 Calories: Protein: 9.2 g; Fat: 3.9 g; Carbohydrates: 73.7 grams; Calcium: 10 mg Phosphorus: 256 mg; Ferrum: 2.4 mg Vitamin A: 510 SI; Vitamin B1: 0.38 mg; Air: 12 gr.
For the same size, though maize has a lower carbohydrate content, yet have more protein content. Corn is a crop (annual). A life cycle completed in 80-150 days.
Thus the article on the Corn School Library; nutritional content, hopefully this article can memebrikan useful information for all of us.
