A Continental Method for Estimating the Supply and Import/ Export of Wheat

Wheat is the principal food of about half of the world’s population. In the 21st century, a steep increase in the global population is expected, mostly in Asia and Africa. While there is a saturation of food in developed countries, many developing countries suffer from a food shortage. We examine the production and supply of wheat by continent, focusing mainly on wheat shortages in Asia and Africa. We also drew conclusions about wheat distribution.
