All About Wheat

Wheat is an extremely important crop in United States agriculture, ranking third amongst acreage planted across farms, just behind corn and soybeans. Wheat harvest is begining to wrap up in the United States and it looks like we had a big, healthy crop this year with most of the country seeing increased yields over last year's harvest. In fact, some are reporting that this is the best crop wheat farmers have seen since the record harvest of 2003. As the combines come in from the field, the trucks are unloaded, and grain storage is filled, we at ATG thought this would be an opportune time to look at the role wheat plays in our lives.

In 1931, the small town of Sheridan, Wyoming, was so quiet that according to local historians you could “shoot a shotgun down Main Street and have no fear of injuring anyone.” With the hopes of livening up the town, a group of citizens organized a rodeo to compete with the well-established professional rodeos, occurring in bigger, more bustling locations.

Scientists estimate that the world’s population will grow to over 9 billion people by 2050—an increase of over 2 billion people! This population growth, combined with rising incomes and changing diets, will require the world to produce around 60 percent more food by 2050 than it does today.

Why Corn is King in the U.S.

To many, the images that spring to mind when thinking of farming in America are the coveted scenes of America's pastoral heritage - the lush orange groves of Florida, the grape vineyards of California, and the pastoral apple orchards of the Northeast. Walk into the produce section of any grocery store and you will see a wide array of colorful fruits and vegetables, piled high and covered with dew as if just picked and washed - from the farm to your table. While these fruits and vegetables allude to a romantic story we commonly associate with American farming, they fail to illustrate the majesty of the true king of American agriculture: Corn.
