When humans first began farming around 10,000 years ago, a variety of grains were among the first plants to come under the plow. Wheat, rice and corn are the big three used around the world these days. But barley, oats, rye, millet, spelt, quinoa, teff and amaranth are just some of the other grains used in the world's different cultures and cuisines.
