Background[edit | edit source]
Maize, also called corn, is a cereal grain first domesticated by indigenous peoples in southern Mexico about 10 000 years ago. The hardy plant grows into a tall, leafy stalk, which produces both pollen and fruit. The maize fruit is called a corn kernel, and grows in rows inside ears produced by the stalk. As a water-efficient crop that produces highly nutritious fruit that can be processed into food, ethanol, livestock feed, oil, and more, maize has become a stable of wasteland agriculture in both regular and mutated varieties.
For example, New California, with its hot, arid climate, relies on the cultivation of vast fields of maize capable of thriving in the post-nuclear soil. In fact, the economic might of places like the Hub was built upon the tilled fields full of maize stalks, processed into countless process necessary for the post-nuclear civilization to thrive.
