Wheat is the major winter crop grown in Australia with sowing starting in autumn and harvesting, depending on seasonal conditions, occurring in spring and summer.

Corn is called maize by most countries, this comes from the Spanish word ‘maiz’.

Corn is a cereal crop that is part of the grass family.

A cob of corn is actually part of the flower and an individual kernel is a seed.

On average an ear of corn has 800 kernels in 16 rows.

Corn will always have an even number of rows on each cob.

The sunflower is a large inflorescence, this means the flower head is actually made of many tiny flowers called florets. Central florets look like the centre of a normal flower while the outer florets look like yellow petals and together they make up a "false flower". This natural design helps insects and birds to easily see the sunflower and after pollination every little flower or floret produces a seed.

The stem of a sunflower can grow up to 3 m tall and the flower head can be 30 cm wide.

Barley contains 8 essential amino acids, vitamins of the B group and minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, iron and zinc.
