  • Wheat is grown in 42 of the 44 counties in Idaho and 42 of the 50 states in America.
  • Idaho ranks 5th in the nation in wheat production with over 106 million bushels produced in 2010.
  • Wheat is measured in bushels. A bushel weighs about 60 pounds and will make about 73 loaves of bread or 53 boxes of cereal.
  • One acre (an area about the size of a football field) can produce enough wheat to provide your family with bread for about 10 years.
  • Besides bread, wheat is used to make cereals, crackers, noodles, cakes, cookies and even licorice!
