Aerial view of the Hot Serial Cereal experiment shows the effects of turning up the heat on wheat. The three lightly shaded strips of wheat in the center were planted in September 2008 and were each divided into three plots: a heated plot with a heating apparatus (shown as a white panel), and reference and control plots where no heat was applied. Wheat in the heated plots, shown as circular patches near each heater, has already been harvested because it grew faster and matured earlier than controls. The dark-green plots on the sides were planted at other times in 2008 and 2009.
