Several large, really LARGE wheat producers last year lost their crops or 
got a real poor crop.  Add into that the decrease in acres in wheat that 
have been converted to corn.  AND, last but not least, Russia has increased, 
substancially, its purchase of wheat.

Wheat prices/availability will certainly be something to watch this year.
