What Canola Can Tell Us About Crops And Climate Change

What Canola Can Tell Us About Crops And Climate Change
Warmer temperatures are making canola and possibly other brassica seedpods open too early, reducing crop yields.

When canola seedpods shatter prematurely, farmers can lose a lot of their crop. Scientists have now figured out how this happens, and it has implications for similar crops facing global warming.
