It also focuses a bit on other corn growing countries in the world. The introduction part gives details of the crop including its production and history. The introduction also outlines the cycles of the corn plant from its planting…

Corn also known as Zea mays in its scientific name is an essential cereal that is believed to have originated from the Western Hemisphere. Many people believe that corn originated from the Mexico and southern Argentina while others suggest its origin as the valleys of Mexico. Many theories of its origin have been created, only two of them get serious consideration nowadays. The first one is the teosinte theory of the wild progenitor of corn. The other is the theory of the wild pod corn that is now extinct. The theory suggested that corn was domesticated by ancestors. Many scholars and students accept the first theory, but others are equally convinced that the second is right. Apart from its possible position in the origin of corn, the first theory has had significant impact on its evolution. Specifically in Mexico, introgression between teosinte and corn has mostly occurred for many years and is continuous to this day (Peckham, 2001).
The effects are not real in the cytology and morphology of both species. There exists a reason to accept that genes for resistance to particular viruses have brought corn to its introgression with teosinte. Origin of corn might never be clearly known with certainty. A major reason is that the suggestion purporting to explain the origin cannot be tested through experiments. Therefore, science may perhaps be better used if less attention is accorded to determine the origin of corn and more to comprehension of the variability existing within the species (Murray, 2007).
Regardless of its origin, corn has proved to be

Figures have shown that “about 82% of the world’s energy needs are currently covered by fossil resources such as petroleum, natural gas and coal” (Soetaert and Vandamme, 2009, 1). The United States, which has less than 5% of the world’s population, is utilzing more than 20% of the world’s available “commercial energy” (Sinha, 1998, 2).
From historical times apart from woods oil and coal are the two most widely used source of energies. Ironically both are fossil fuel. One of the main problems with fossil fuels is that they are limited in availability. The amount or volume of fossil fuel in earth is constant and as we use them to get the required energy; they will surely be depleting.
Thus, the increase in the demand of corn would lead to a decrease in the supply of soybean. The increase in the demand of corn is due to the fact that people have found it to be a very useful source of alternative energy source and so, it does not follow the inverse relationship between price and the quantity demanded.
Main two problem faced by the society due to the impact of mass production of corn is the environmental problem and economic problem. Environmental problem can be reduced by way of reducing the chemical usage for producing the corn for industrial usage.
Evidently, corn would not exist if it was not cultivated and preserved by human beings. Millions of people, especially those in America depend upon corn for their food. In fact, it is a cereal plant of Gramineae family wild grass called teosinte (History Detective: In the beginning).
The teosinte are also either rhizome-forming perennials or “annuals that reproduce every year from seed” (495). Corn or maize, however, has a rigid rachis called the cob and is made up of kernels (494). Although some scientists believe that teosinte is the ancestor of corn, many people do not because of the differences of the appearance of teosinte when compared with corn.
The basis of this can be proving by using the regression analysis, this study shows the relationship of the rent of land to the other factors, based on the data provided.
The Analysis of relationship between the fertilizer and the variety of corn in farm land will be analyzed by using one way ANOVA test.
