Q- How did white Americans intercede America turn the grasslands into Bread Basket of the world?

Answer- The urban population of United State of America was growing and the export market was becoming even bigger. As the demand increased, wheat prices rose encouraging farmers to produce food grains mainly wheat. 

American settlers laid down railway lines that made it easier to transport grain for wheat growing regions for the export to European countries. During world war many countries lost their production, so the excessive wheat produced in United State of America fed the Whole Europe. That is why US president said that ‘Plant more wheat, wheat will win the war’.
