As the web site I've linked to the heading states, wheat was king in Saskatchewan for many years. The hockey team in my home town was called "Wheat Kings" to recognize the size and importance of wheat to the local grain farmers.
Wheat is no longer the primary grain crop on the prairies but it still is one of the main grains that supplies the world with flour for breads and pastries.
Maybe wheat is still the king of grains!
I've uploaded the photo of a wheat field I posted earlier, but I thought it was a good time to include it to help the reader to visualize the size and breadth (no pun intended) of wheat fields.
