Wheat

Wheat

“Give us this day our daily bread . . .”

Wheat has been cultivated for 10,000 years and today we commit more farmland worldwide to growing wheat than any other crop.http://science.howstuffworks.com/life/botany/wheat.htm

We visited Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Ass’n.’s Pioneer Days and relived a part of growing up in rural southeastern Minnesota.

  2. Hi Lois,
    Beautiful shot of a stalk of wheat. It’s amazing the amount of wheat we consume. It’s in almost everything we eat. Have a great day!!

  8. Beautiful portrait of wheat. Just a small clarification to the fact about farmland devoted to growing wheat…the statement is correct for worldwide acres planted but in the US, corn is number one and soybeans are number two in acres planted (for 2013).

    • Thank you for the clarification. We have edited our statement.
