The world total annual cereal production in 2002 was recorded as weighing 2 billion tonnes. Cereal production includes cereals that are sold and those that are consumed by the producer.

All territories produce some cereals. However there is particularly low cereal production on some islands. Eight of the ten territories with the lowest per person cereal production are islands.

Eastern Asia produces the most cereals in total. North America produces the most cereals per person living there. North America produces twenty times more cereals per person living there than Central Africa produces.

"For about a third of the world’s population, rice equals life. The cereal provides more than half the daily calories that these people consume." John Travis, 2002

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide cereal production that occurs there.
