Inclusion of a crop model in a climate model

Crop models are parameterization schemes that simulate the processes of crop development and production. Their inclusion in climate models can promote the simulation ability of climate models, according to Dr. Jing Zou at ...

The evolution of grain yield

A high grain yield is undoubtedly a desirable trait in cereal crops. Floret fertility is a key factor that determines the number of grains per inflorescence of cereals such as bread, wheat or barley. Nonetheless, until recently, ...

Early sowing systems can boost Australian grain industry

New findings from research by La Trobe University and CSIRO made possible with GRDC investment could lead to a significant increase in the Australian wheat crop yield—adding potentially around $1.8 billion to the national ...

DIY crop speed breeding system to boost drought research

Plant speed breeding could be part of the solution to minimise the devastating effects of drought and climate change on crops in the future, according to a University of Queensland researcher.

Scientists reveal spring cold spells that reduce crop yields

North China (35 degrees -40 degrees N, 110 degrees -120 degrees E) is a major region in China for winter wheat agriculture. The reviving, jointing and booting stages of winter wheat mainly happen in the spring. Spring cold ...
