Rapeseed is one of the foods that could be made more temperature-resilient, research suggests

New research out of the UK’s John Innes Centre suggests that it may be possible to engineer cauliflower, broccoli, rapeseed, and other crops, so they’re better suited to farming in a world beset by climate change. The key is in the gene that influences how these plants release their seeds. By tweaking this gene’s figurative thermostat, this seed dispersal could be made to happen at higher temperatures, increasing crop yields in warming climes.
