Wheat production

Wheat is the second most important grain that is cultivated in the United States, following only corn. Wheat is a cereal crop that can be classified into five major classes. These 5 wheat categories are comprised of: hard red winter, hard red spring, soft red winter, white and durum wheat.

Each class has a different end-use and the cultivation tends to be region-specific. Hard red winter wheat is mainly cultivated in the Great Plains area ranging from Montana to Texas. This type is primarily used for the manufacturing of bread flour. Hard red spring wheat is mainly grown in the Northern Plains area. Their wheat ears are mostly taken for protein blending uses. Durum wheat, which is primarily grown in North Dakota and Montana, is well-known for their excellent qualities for producing pasta. The wheat class everyone is familiar with from their breakfast cereal is known as white wheat.

Almost every U.S. state is involved in agricultural production of wheat. The latest figures show that North Dakota, Kansas and Montana were the leading wheat producing states among the United States.
