The article presents information on a forecast, according to which hard red winter (HRW) wheat production will be below one billion-bushel in 2013 in the U.S. It is stated that in most of the HRW wheat area, wheat was planted with inadequate soil moisture, which resulted in low productivity. Most of the HRW wheat area has insufficient subsoil moisture. It is mentioned that timely rain, average temperatures, and absence of diseases are required for wheat production.

    The energy balance of eddy covariance (EC) flux data is typically not closed. The nature of the gap is usually not known, which hampers using EC data to parameterize and test models. The present study elucidates the nature of the energy gap of EC flux data from winter wheat stands in southwest...
