Caption: Drought. Dried and cracked mud in front of a crop of oilseed rape (Brassica napus). Floodwater deposited mud onto the field, which later dried and shrank causing the ground to crack and preventing plant growth. Flooding and drought can cause severe crop damage. Rape, also known as colza or canola, is grown for its oil-rich seed. Rape seed oil is used for cooking, lubrication, as a fuel and in the manufacture of soap. The stems and leaves of the plant are used for animal fodder. Photographed in Manitoba, Canada.
