Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) yield traits program manager Jorge Mayer said to ensure continued crop productivity gains, crop traits were needed to deal with various environmental stresses at every developmental stage of the crop... Dr Mayer said Managed Environment Facilities (MEFs), established in recent years with GRDC support, were being used to validate water productivity traits and to develop and apply new research methods... "Trait values generated from research at the MEFs will be provided to plant breeders, along with genotyping and phenotyping tools for incorporation of selected traits in to new crop varieties," Dr Mayer said...

As manager of the Narrabri MEF, she is part of the team leading a charge to improve drought and heat tolerance in cereals and recognises the pivotal role of the research in improving the long-term crop productivity and profitability of growers across New South Wales and Queensland... Located at the I.A Watson Grains Research Centre, the Narrabri MEF represents a significant investment for GRDC's northern region and provides researchers with the ability to make accurate, repeatable and relevant measurements of drought and heat response in wheat... "The MEF is a nationally funded GRDC project which aims to look at drought tolerant wheat varieties or breeding lines to identify what traits make a wheat cultivar more resistant or tolerant to drought," Dr Pattison said...

Germplasm performed well for adaptation across the three MEFs- in the western GRDC region at Merredin, WA; in the southern region at Yanco, NSW, and the northern region at Narrabri, NSW - indicating its value and confidence in subsequent assessment... The 2010-11 MEF activities reflected 'pilot' activities aimed at addressing logistical, communication and deployment issues while providing an initial assessment of germplasm targeting genetic improvement in wheat performance under drought... Germplasm has been requested by breeding companies for assessment and crossing while there is strong interest in the deployment of field-based, high throughput phenotyping tools such as Phenonet and the Phenomobile...
