Scientists to study plant root function, add knowledge for improving efficient nutrient uptake in agricultural crops
Roots are more than just the location where soil and plants come into contact. They play a critical role in the environment and hold a great deal of promise for helping us improve agricultural sustainability.
Larry York, Ph.D., assistant professor at the Noble Research Institute, presented "Root functional phenomics: Using phenotyping to understand soil resource acquisition" as part of the Research Seminar Series.
The Noble Research Institute is screening natural diversity for root traits in crop and pasture species. With new knowledge, breeding programs can release cultivars with improved root systems.
