Current frost phenotyping methods used within the Australian National Frost Program (ANFP) are based on frost induced sterility at flowering... This estimation of varietal response to frost assumes the reduction in grain number is the main yield component affected... There has been limited work evaluating the effect of frost induced sterility on yield components (grains per m2, spikes per m2 and grain weight) and final grain yield or for variation in this under frost...

Plant breeders have made great progress in improving disease resistance but much less progress improving the adaptation of wheat to drought and high temperature... There is a need to establish better methods for assessing drought and heat tolerance under field conditions to support Australian wheat breeding... The establishment of a managed environment facility (MEF) in the field at Narrabri provides a means of making accurate, repeatable and relevant measurements of drought and heat response in wheat...
