Wheat was a type of food-grain with varieties found throughout the Milky Way Galaxy.

In 2268, quadrotriticale was initially described as wheat by James Kirk, only for him to be corrected that it was not simply wheat but a high-yield grain that was a hybrid of wheat and rye. Nevertheless, the simpler term was used as shorthand for the hybrid by Kirk several times afterward. (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles")

In 2374, instability in the Bajoran wormhole caused by the Reckoning led to widespread flooding in Rakantha, destroying two-thirds of the wheat harvest. (DS9: "The Reckoning")

In the final draft script of TOS: "Mudd's Women", Bootes III was described as a "wheat-growing planet".
