Research at the Australian Grains Free-Air CO<INF>2</INF> Enrichment (AGFACE) project was jointly run by the University of Melbourne and Agriculture Victoria Research (Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources) with funding from the Grains Research and Development Corporation and the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources. The authors gratefully acknowledge the contributions of the AGFACE field team lead by Russel Argall, Mel Munn and Roger Perris (all Agriculture Victoria) for agronomic management of the experiment and collecting soil water and CropCircle data, Samuel Henty (University of Melbourne) for tracing root images and Mahabubur Mollah (Agriculture Victoria) for operating and maintaining the CO<INF>2</INF> enrichment technology. SU was supported by a Melbourne International Research Scholarship.
