Sensei Surendra Sawardekar, Dr. Urmila Sarkar, Dr. Urmila Sarkar

Abstract


Nutritional value of plant purely depends on the methodology of cultivation. (Urmila Sarkar and Surendra Sawardekar) Different methods of
cultivation lead to prior proficiency of plant growth in terms of germination, height, weight, nutritional factors and so on. (Urmila Sarkar and
Surendra Sawardekar). A practice of 'Organic farming' for the production of quality based nutritional contents becomes an essential element. A crop
such as Zea mays L. (Maize or Corn) is an important staple crop known for its wide range of nutritional component such as Carbohydrate, fats,
proteins, minerals, vitamins, moisture, ash etc. (Urmila Sarkar and Surendra Sawardekar).
The experimental research is focused on assessment of Protein content from organically grown Zea mays L. (maize/corn). The results conclude
efficient amount of total protein in Zea mays L. plant material as a whole viz. root, leaf and seed.
