Nighttime heat stresses wheat

Kansas State University agronomists Krishna Jagadish and Allan Fritz talk about a research project they're conducting, which is testing the impact of high nighttime temperatures on a wheat stand's ability to produce good yields and quality grain. They're artificially introducing controlled heat to wheat overnight, in the hopes that the information they gather will be beneficial to wheat variety development.
