Wheat

CULTIVATION

Wheat is a cereal grain, (botanically, a type of fruit called a caryopsis) originally from the Levant region of the Near East but now cultivated worldwide. This grain is grown on more land area than any other commercial food.

Wheat is the most important grain worldwide based on grain acreage and is ranked third when it comes to the total production volume. The global amount of wheat produced came to about 655 million metric tons in crop year 2012/2013. Globally, wheat is the leading source of vegetal protein in human food, having a higher protein content than the other major cereals maize (corn) and rice. In terms of total production tonnages used for food, it is currently second to rice as the main human food crop and ahead of maize, after allowing for maize's more extensive use in animal feeds.
