  Mexico - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mexico is a powerful and influential neighbor of the United States, in terms of trade, culture, diplomacy, and a history of emigration of Mexicans into the U.S. since the early 1900's.

 Maize Article - Encyclopedia of Culture and Society of Mexico
Mexico, the world's fourth largest producer of maize, currently produces approximately 14 million tons of grain annually on 6.5 million hectares (3% of world production on 5% of the world's land devoted to maize production).
Because most maize produced in Mexico is for direct human consumption, and because it is produced by self-provisioning farmers in small-scale settings, the expensive, uniform, high-yielding dent hybrids of the north central United States are not suited to the highly variable production conditions or nutritional requirements of most Mexican producers.
Enrique Florescano documented a series of social and economic crises in colonial Mexico that he showed were directly tied to the rise of maize prices, and which he argues were an important contributor to the political instability that, among other effects, resulted in the revolutionary war against Spain in 1810.
