Maize is a multipurpose, summer, cereal, grain and silage crop that serves as a good rotation crop with legumes and cotton. Maize has a low capital investment, low growing risk and generally a longer window of harvest than other crops.

In Australia maize is a minor summer crop, most of which is consumed domestically. Maize produced in Australia is approximately 50% rainfed or dryland and 50% grown with the assistance of irrigation. All Australian maize is non-genetically modified organism (non-GMO). Maize grain varies greatly from very soft (starchy) to very hard (hard endosperm), which determines end use.
