Composition of Maize (Indian Corn), Including the Grain, Meal, Stalks, Pith, Fodder, and Cobs: Compiled Chiefly From the Records of the Division of Chemistry (Classic Reprint)
Sir: I transmit herewith, for your inspection and approval, the manuscript of Bulletin No. 50 of this division, relating to the composition of maize in all its parts.
The material contained in this bulletin has been compiled from the records, mostly recent, of the investigations of the Division of Chemistry of the composition of maize. Some of the data have also been derived from the researches of the agricultural colleges and experiment stations. No attempt has been made to give a complete summary of the work which has been done in this country on this product, but simply to present, in a condensed form, the more important data in connection with its composition.
The immediate object of the preparation of this bulletin is to present it to the Third International Congress of Applied Chemistry, in Vienna. There is in Europe a considerable degree of prejudice against the use of Indian corn as a human food, and its value as a cattle food, both in respect of its grain and its stover, is not fully appreciated. It is believed that this brief summary of our present knowledge on the subject will prove advantageous both to the maize growers of this country and to the food consumers of Europe.
