There are certainly books on the wheat agribusiness. I usually advise
academics to consult the Library of Congress catalogue. Why? because it is
the largest English language collection there is, and the catalogue is well
structured. If you type in "wheat" you get about 4,000 titles, you can
refine this search with terms like "wheat market", "agribusiness" etc.
Oxbridge also has good catalogues.

I also googled with terms like "political economy of the wheat market" and
got quite a few hits. I found for example a fairly recent blog by Steve
Suppan, policy analyst at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy

I've used the example of a world market price for wheat in a wiki on ground
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential_and_Absolute_Ground_Rent It's only
an obscure topic though and gets only about 4,500 hits per year (not like
"commodity fetishism", which is more popular).

Hope this helps,
