Quote

GABRIELLE GLASER, THE NOSE--[H]e drew... great breaths, trying... to catch smells that the breeze would throw... . For odors told you when crops... were ripe; one whiff of morning air could convey that it was... too damp to run the combines, or too dry to fertilize.

Full quote

Over time I learned just what he meant as he drew his great breaths, trying, fleetingly, to catch smells that the breeze would throw first one way and then the other. For odors told you when crops, from wheat to rye grass, were ripe; one whiff of morning air could convey that it was still too damp to run the combines, or too dry to fertilize.
