Biography/HistoryGrain planted in a drought year might find enough moisture in the soil to sprout and grow. However, if rain does not fall at the right time, the grains will not thrive. In this photograph, wheat has been stunted by drought. Weeds, however, are growing in the soil around the wheat stems. The weeds steal the moisture from the wheat plants.
