Abstract

(Revised from Leaflet No. 745 by H. G. Elliott.)

Maize, being indigenous to the warmer parts of either Southern Mexico, Central America or Northern South America, thrives best under warm, moist conditions. It is susceptible to frosts and must be grown in regions which are free from them during the growing season. The plant is fairly drought-resistant, providing the ground is in good condition and well cultivated between the plants, until the tasselling period. Ample evidence has been obtained in this State to show that maize can be grown successfully for both green feed and grain in the south and west coastal on summer moist land and irrigation areas.
