Changing weather patterns to hit wheat yields

Changing weather patterns to hit wheat yields | Agricultural Research | Scoop.it

A group of international researchers, including Rothamsted Research scientists in the South of England, has used a series of climate scenarios to predict the frequency and severity of weather extremes affecting wheat production across Europe in the next 50 years. The researchers found that probability of more than one of extreme events occurring during a wheat cultivation season is likely to increase.
