Description:
Wheat heads hold between 40 and 75 kernels of wheat. Once the heads are filled, the plant begins to dry down and turn yellow. Harvest begins when the kernels are dry and hard. Ontario has approximately 6 million acres of land suitable for growing wheat, and produces approximately 1.5 million tonnes per year.
