Wheat is a crop of global significance. It is grown in diversified environments. It is a staple food of millions of people. Approximately one-sixth of the total arable land in the world is cultivated with wheat. Whereas paddy is mainly cultivated in Asia, wheat is grown in all the continents of the world. It supplies about 20% of the food calories for the world's growing population. Global wheat production touched 655.5Million tones in 2016-17. India is the second largest producer of wheat after China. Wheat has a distinct place among the food grain crops. Carbohydrates and proteins are two main constituents of wheat. On an average wheat contains 11-12% protein.
Wheat cultivation in India traditionally been dominated by the northern region of India. The northern states plains in India have been prolific wheat producers. While this cereal grass has been studied carefully in the past, recent years of painstaking research by India's finest scientific talent has paid off with the development of distinctly superior varieties of Durum Wheat.
This hard wheat is cultivated in clayey soil and is highly sought after for its physical characteristics. Its high gluten strength and uniform golden colour makes it ideal for bread making and pasta preparation unlike the softer commercially high yielding wheat, which lacks the strength and consistency of durum. Today, India is exporting sufficient quantities of all types of wheat and extensive research efforts are underway for improving its cereals and grain output in the years to come. Various studies and researches show that wheat and wheat flour play an increasingly important role in the management of Indiaís food economy.
