If not, let's us examine the numbers.

EU: 134.5 million metric tons
China: 125.6 million metric tons
India: 94.9 million metric tons
US: 61.8 million metric tons
Russia: 37.7 million metric tons
Australia: 29.9 million metric tons
Canada: 27.0 million metric tons

Going by this, I'm sure the world will survive. They seem very capable of producing their own wheat.

Gross production is not how much is exported.

Country Exports (in billions)

United States $118.3

Netherlands $79

Germany $70.8

France $68

Brazil $55.4

America being the "breadbasket" to the world is largely a myth disseminated by Monsanto and Dupont.

We have been importing grains for a long time.

Did you know that over half of all grains grown are fed to livestock? Comparable numbers for soybeans as well...

RE: What Happens when America can no longer feed the world?
If there was free market without government regulations and currency manipulation, the price of American food would slowly go up as the waters would dry. That would gradually stimulate funding of new food developments in other parts of the world and competition for America. America would get a soft landing, naturally slowing down or stopping the exploit of water supply.
But nope, big corporations get subsidies from the government (which needs someone to use its printed money) and so they stimulate production. People may have six times as big minimal wage as in 1950, but due to money printing it buys only half as much goods, so people have to work, produce and waste twice as much resources just to retain a minimum life standard.

Government-printed money is the greatest source of consumerism and ecological destruction. If you care about nature, stop central banking.

When the world population hits 20 billion there will not be enough resources for the world to feed itself. Result: world starvation and nuclear war.
