Saudi Arabia has long been trying to establish the production of wheat, but all attempts are futile. In addition, this country needs to save water.
For several years, state buys or leases  agricultural land in other countries for wheat cultivation. However, the kingdom is doomed to total imports in 2016, according to informer "TradeKeyNews."
Since 2008, government of Saudi Arabia cut its purchases of wheat from local farmers by 12.5% annually to save water resources. This would lead to complete dependence on import after three years.
