Wheat Since 3,500 B.C.

Farmers grow up to 25 billion bushels of wheat a year (a bushel of wheat is around 60 pounds). That's 1,500,000,000,000 pounds of wheat!
11,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent, which was in the Middle East, wheat was born! It was one of the first plants ever grown.
Wheat feeds most livestock and is one of the most important grains for humans.
Wheat is a very importanant grain, 😋.

Time for some facts!

Wheat grows up to about 2-5 feet tall. Wheat can also grow in hot and dry conditions. Wheat grows fairly quickly, it takes about 30-60 days after flowering.

Now time for the serious stuff.

If the Europeans didn't bring over wheat then America wouldn't be the same without it, it wouldn't be a rich country, and we wouldn't have wheat products!
Because of wheat, we became a more civilized community coming up with new ideas, such as, the plow, which makes farming way more easy, and silos that store the wheat so you could use it for later.
As you can see, wheat had a major impact all across the globe. Although you aren't able to grow it everywhere it still makes farming life way more easier.
