The protein content in wheat can vary, and certain strains of wheat are better for making bread while others are more appropriate for pasta, cakes, cookies, cereals and other dietary staples. In years where supplies exceed demand, inventories grow, and the price tends to drop lower. In years where crop output suffers due to adverse weather conditions, supplies can become scarce, and the price rises. Those high prices led to the Arab Spring uprisings. Population growth has led the world to depend on bumper crops of wheat each year.
