Corn in Urdu: مکئ
Corn in Roman Urdu: MakaiPop! Pop! Popcorn clicks our mind when we are talking about corns. While having tea/milk sitting on lush green gardens or having it any time of the day, popcorn are all time favorite for kids. We just keep on imagining how beautifully the seeds are wrapped up in leaves and how enjoyable it is to bite the cooked corns directly. Other types of corns include flint, sweet, pod and flour. The foundation of corn or maize was 2500 BC back, it was first founded in Mexico and then it spread all over the United States where the Americans started trading it across the globe. Surprisingly, it is one of the grain which can grow widely in any climate that is why tons of it are grown annually worldwide. This grain plant is 8 feet high and its branch resembles the bamboo cane. Before the Second World War, it was yielded by hand throughout North America, but now there are a number of other techniques and methods to harvest corns. In Pakistan, after wheat and rice, corn is the third vital grain which is grown on 1 million hectares of land and produces about 3.3 million MT. Hats off to our farmers who are working extremely hard throughout the day on the maize farms. Although we lack in having new machinery, but our workers are running all over the fields like machines leading to a good source of income for them.
