The aim of the Managed Environment Facility (MEF-Yanco) 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 growing in water limited or drought-prone environments... The MEF-Yanco will provide a world-class field research facilitiy for improving the accuracy and reliability of germplasm characterisation (phenotyping) to quantify the contribution of individual traits to water use efficiency... Yanco was selected as one of three sites to establish a Managed Environment Facility, it is representative of dryland water-limited environments across southern NSW and northern Victoria...
