The United States is no long the world market leader in wheat production, according to the latest crop survey released by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The report released on Tuesday by the USDA showed that the United Kingdom is now the world leader in the wheat production category.
The UK is the world No. 1 wheat producer, producing nearly one third of the global wheat output.
The UK produces the world�s largest amount of wheat in the UK, producing more than 5 million tonnes of wheat annually.
This is an image from a map of the wheat supply chain of the UK in October 2018.
The United States also ranks No. 2, with Canada and Australia ranked third and fourth respectively.
The US is the only major economy in the world that has grown wheat and not corn.
The report comes at a time when the US wheat crop has been severely affected by weather, drought and crop failure.
The country�s wheat crop was down 4 percent in 2018 and up 9 percent in 2019, the report said.
The USDA report also revealed that in 2019 the US produced 2.4 billion bushels of corn and 1.5 billion bushells of wheat.
The United Kingdom was responsible for nearly half of the corn produced in the country.
The British have traditionally been the biggest wheat exporter in the EU and the US, accounting for nearly one-third of global wheat production.
But the UK’s export to Europe dropped 10 percent last year and this has put pressure on the UK�s grain export market.
