Author(s): Jianqing Wang, Lianqing Li, Shu Kee Lam, Xiaoyu Liu, Genxing PanAbstractThe impact of climate change on grain quality is a critical issue for human health. However, how grain chemical element composition responds to climate change stresses has been poorly addressed. An open-air field experiment was conducted to investigate the impacts of factorial combinations of [CO2] (elevated [CO2...
