Our Magnificent Seven of Grains are perhaps not as exciting as those in the Seven Samurai or the cinematic classic The Magnificent Seven (Yul Brynner, 1960), but they are also essential to the survival of the world “village.” Without the Magnificent Seven of Grains hunger would be far more widespread in the wold. These seven nations provide 78% of the global course grain and wheat exportsThey provide 13% of total world consumption of these grains.

Essentially, course grains and wheat are total grains minus corn and rice.
