Description
English: Edge of a field of Corn or Maize, Zea mays; north-eastern Lower Saxony, Germany. The plants are ± full-grown but still not quite ready for harvest. The high density indicates that the primary purpose here is a large yield of biomass (not fruits/corn). In the district of Lüchow-Dannenberg, in 2011 about 8557 hectares of maize were grown – more than 15 % of the local agricultural land, with an average yield of 44 t/ha. A third of which was used as forage for livestock, the big rest as a raw material for fermentation in biogas plants. Corn for direct human consumption apparently plays no role in that region.
Deutsch: Rand eines Feldes mit ± ausgewachsenem, aber noch nicht ganz erntereifem Mais (Zea mays) im nordöstlichen Niedersachsen, Deutschland. Die hohe Bestandesdichte weist darauf hin, dass es hier in erster Linie um einen möglichst großen Ertrag an Biomasse geht, nicht etwa um die Früchte. In dem betreffenden Gebiet (Landkreis Lüchow-Dannenberg) wurden im Jahr 2011 ca. 8557 Hektar Mais angebaut – das entspricht gut 15 Prozent der dortigen landwirtschaftlichen Nutzfläche, mit einem durchschnittlichen Ertrag von 44 t/ha. Ein Drittel davon diente der Futtergewinnung für Vieh, der große Rest als Rohstoff für die Vergärung in Biogasanlagen (Tendenz für letzteres steigend; Quelle: Elbe-Jeetzel-Zeitung vom 27.09.2011). Mais für die direkte menschliche Ernährung (Zuckermais) spielt dort dagegen wohl überhaupt keine Rolle.
