Researchers at Noble are gaining a better understanding of how deep and in what direction plant roots grow. Their hope is to provide knowledge that enables breeding of plants better able to utilize limited water and nutrient resources with the help of deeper roots.
Serendipita bescii can improve root development and increase overall forage biomass and grain yield in winter wheat, especially in nutritionally poor soil and limited water conditions.
Researchers at the Noble Research Institute have discovered how differences in root systems can result in deeper rooting, greater nitrogen uptake and increased plant growth.
