Wheat and heat: Using computer models to predict crop growth

It may be winter at the moment in Australia, but researchers there are keeping their sights on all things warm with the focus of their research: how heat waves affect wheat.

Their study mixes real-world observations with computer science, creating models that demonstrate how wheat responds to heat-caused changes in the air, soil, water and […]
