Wheat is thought to have been domesticated in the Tigris and Euphrates River Valleys of Iran and Iraq, around 6,500-7,500 BC. From here, it traveled with explorers into China and Europe. Wheat was brought to the Americas by the Spanish and arrived in Northern Mexico and Southern Arizona in the 1600's, by missionary Eusebio Francisco Kino. Kino introduced Christianity, ranching, and wheat-based agriculture to local people such as the Pima and the Tohono O’odham.
