13 December 2014. The newly appointed Minister of Agriculture Waleed Al-Kuraiji said Tuesday that the Kingdom will rely completely on imported wheat starting from 2016. The Kingdom was able in 2008 to produce over 2 million tons of wheat however it soon rejected this self-sufficiency project due to its negative affect on its water resources.
