As atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) increases, wheat grain yields are expected to increase by five to 40 per_cent through the 'CO2 fertilisation effect'; the climate is more than just elevated CO 2 ... Researchers at the Australian Grains Free-Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (AGFACE) facility at Horsham, Victoria, are measuring the effects of a changing climate through field experiments in which additional carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) is released onto test crops, a technique known as free-air CO 2 enrichment (FACE)... If the water supply to plants can be increased with careful agronomic management (for example, stubble retention and weed control) the effects of rising temperatures and lower growing-season rainfall could be reduced...
