Canada's Wheat

Reader comment on item: Hunger Growls in Egypt

Submitted by Gary Clarke (Canada), Nov 14, 2014 at 23:59

Many years Canada is the largest exporter of wheat to Egypt, and of course many others sell wheat to Egypt. I often wonder how we get paid- is it all on credit?

Farmers will tell you that wheat is a weed- "all you have to do is s**t on it and it will grow". It would appear that grain production (lentils are cited) has more to do with ambition and planning than ability ? What other reasons are there that have caused production to drop so dramatically I'm wondering.
