Managed Environment Facility - Merredin

Plain text source: 
The aim of the Managed Environment Facility (MEF-Merredin) is to provide essential infrastructure and support for field research projects directed towards identifying adaptive traits and management strategies for improved productivity of field crops, especially wheat and barley, growing in water limited or drought-prone environments... The MEF-Merredin will provide a world class field research facility for improving the accuracy and reliability of germplasm characterisation (phenotyping) and of novel production technologies... Nationally co-ordinated research conducted at the facility will identify traits which will form the basis for increased yield and quality of broad acre crops (with emphasis on cereals) in the low and variable rainfall environments of southern Australia...
