14 How many different areas of science connect to wheat?

15 The application of science to solve a problem. 7. Technology

16 Growing and management of living things in water. 8. Aquaculture

17 Grass used for decorative and also soil holding purposes. 9. Turf

18 The science of insect life. 10. Entomology

19 Forensic entomology is the application and study of insect and other arthropod biology to criminal matters. It also involves the application of the study of arthropods, including insects, arachnids, centipedes, millipedes, and crustaceans to criminal or legal cases. It is primarily associated with death investigations; however, it may also be used to detect drugs and poisons, determine the location of an incident, and find the presence and time of the infliction of wounds. Forensic entomology can be divided into three subfields: urban, stored- product and medico-legal/medico-criminal entomology.insectarthropodentomologyurbanstored- productmedico-legal/medico-criminal
