The article reports on the underlying factors which have contributed in the increase of wheat prices by five dollars in the U.S. It outlines the various reasons of such price hike including the growth of population in China which is estimated to be 20 percent of the world's population, fund positions in wheat, and corn marketing. The need to maintain wheat prices at relatively high ratios through March 2011 to neutralize 2011 spring wheat planted acres are noted.
