Therefore, it seems highly important to investigate and analyze the impacts of economic liberalization on its market structure and marketing performance. The objectives of this study included (1) The marketing channels of the wheat produced on farms, (2) The consumption pattern of the farm household, with respect to wheat and other grain substitutes, (3) The factors affecting the marketable surplus of wheat, (5) The price and sale seasonality pattern. To reach such objectives, the study used the data of a sample survey for wheat that covered the agricultural year 1995/1996. The survey conducted in three regions: two from lower Egypt (a village in Gharbia Governorate and a village from Sharkia Governorate) and one from upper Egypt (a village from Menia Governorate). The total sample size was 113 farms of different farm size classes. Another survey was conducted to cover the whole sale market. It included 14 grains' traders in the three concerned governorates.
