Wheat is the second largest agricultural crop in the world after rice.

Wheat is one of the first plants to be domesticated as a food crop by ancient civilizations. It originated from wild grasses native to the arid countries northwest of Fertile Crescent (between Armenia and the Caspian Sea in western Asia) between 8 000 and 10 000 years ago. It is now grown in virtually all parts of the world and is considered an important grain crop in the world economy.

​Wheat production is unique in South Africa in the sense that there are three distinct wheat production areas, each with their own challenges and specific requirements.
