The government has implemented a variety of poverty management and poverty reduction policies. Among them, supporting rural wheat farming can effectively increase the economic income of low-income people, thereby reducing the poverty rate. Objective: To study the development of rural wheat planting industry, which is helpful to analyze the current income situation of wheat planting industry to the poor and the real causes of poverty, and reduce the total number of poor people. Method: This paper studies the use of effective data such as FGT poverty rate and Lorentz curve to obtain the relationship between government expenditure and poverty rate; investigates the production status data of wheat planting industry and the causes of poverty of poor people, and analyzes the causes of poverty of low-income people, So as to improve and put forward poverty reduction measures. Results: The final study showed that the incidence of poverty in China fell from 45.6% to 3.1% from 2000 to 2018, which is inseparable from the government ’s poverty management and poverty reduction policies in rural areas. The government's subsidy for wheat farming increased from 120 yuan per mu to 300 yuan per mu from 2013 to 2017, that is, the agricultural subsidy received by the poor increased year by year, and the poverty rate declined significantly. The process of poverty reduction is long and difficult. The government should pay attention to scientific and technological investment in rural wheat plantation and implement poverty reduction governance and poverty reduction policies.
