Production and consumption of corn in Ukraine
The possibilities of using resources of the plant biomass as an effective renewable energy source are analyzed. The issues of the current state of corn for grain production, peculiarities of its cultivation and the possibility of using agrarian residues in corn production to produce energy are considered in the study.

Context 1... highest gross harvest of corn for grain in Europe is obtained in Ukraine. Gross production of corn in 2018-2019 the marketing year was about 35.6 million tons, which is almost 11 million tons more than in the previous marketing year (Table 1). Such a leap was achieved through favourable conditions during the vegetation period of culture that caused high yield culture at the average of 7.8 t/ha (at annual 5.5 -6.6 t/ha). ...
The research aimed to process corn kernels into instant corn rice. Corn kernels are ground into grits then pre-gelatinized by churning for 25 minutes at a temperature of 85-93 ⁰ C with a ratio of grits and water (1: 4) then dried to become instant corn rice. The results showed that pre-gelatinization had an effect on yield and product characteristi...
