Growing Wheat Production to Drive the Demand

The most recent estimate by the International Grain Council predicts that wheat production will surpass 765 million tons. As a result, it is anticipated that wheat production would increase by 2 million tons over the previous year. The production of flour made from wheat is anticipated to expand in the upcoming years due to this increase in wheat yield.
