Wheat in China

Drought Shrivels China’s Wheat Belt - NY Times.
Many people when they think of Chinese food, immediately think of rice. That is true for Southern China, but for Northern China think of noodles, which are made out of wheat. China is currently undergoing a drought, along with poor usage of water, is reducing the amount of wheat grown. This should help the US wheat crop, bringing a better price for it since recently the price of wheat has decreased due to increased plantings which were made based on use in Ethanol (which has gone down).
