Specialty Corns discusses the genetic variation inherently present in corn, genetic materials available, breeding methods, and special problems associated with the development of specialty corns. The book describes how genetic mutants of corn can be used to modify corn starch for alternative uses of corn. It explains that modifications of starch can be made for expanded industrial uses of corn. The development of specialty types of corn through genetic materials and breeding methods is presented.
