Wheat petite: China's wheat output set to drop sharply in wake of bad weather

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s wheat output could drop as much as 20 percent this crop year after bad weather hit fields in major growing areas, likely boosting imports by the world’s top producer and consumer of the grain, traders and an analyst said.

Whether wheat weathers heat waves

Computer models help predict plants' response to challenging temperature

A heat wave sweeps through a city and people swelter, running indoors to find air conditioning. But crops out in a field aren't so lucky. For them, there is no escape.

Scientists in Australia are working to understand how heat waves impact wheat. They are mixing observational studies with techniques from computer science. This will allow them to create models to understand how wheat will respond in certain conditions.
