Insect activity, crop losses could increase as global temperatures rise

When temperatures go up, so do certain risks, like the potential presence of certain crop and shellfish toxins. Alongside these risks, a new study outlines how insect activity also increases as the globe heats up — leading to increased crop loss.

Research from the University of Washington suggests that a rise of just 2°C can […]

Genome of wheat, the world’s most common crop, sequenced after 13 years

You’d think, then, that wheat would have been early up on that list. After all, it’s the most commonly grown crop in the world. […]

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 […]
