Corn leaf is the perfect leaf. Elongated shape. Between the midrib and leaf blade are ligulae. Leaves the bone parallel to the bone leaves. Leaf surfaces are smooth and there are hairless. Stoma on the dumbbell-shaped leaves of corn, which typically have families Poaceae. Each stoma is surrounded by epidermal cells of the fan-shaped. This structure plays an important role in the response of plants respond to water deficit in leaf cells. Corn has male flowers and female flowers are separate (diklin) in one plant (monoecious). Each flower has a distinctive structure of the tribe of Poaceae flowers, called florets.

Substances in corn: corn seeds are rich in carbohydrates. Most are on endospermium. Carbohydrate content can reach 80% of whole dried seed material. Carbohydrates in the form of starch are generally a mixture of amylose and amylopectin. In glutinous corn, most or all starch is amylopectin. This difference is not much of an effect on nutrient content, but more significant in the processing as food. Sweet corn amylopectin is known to contain lower but has increased fitoglikogen and sucrose.
