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.
Noble researchers are developing technologies that allow them to uncover roots and harness their ability to generate more nutrient-efficient, more resilient and more sustainable plant varieties.
Genomic technologies make it possible to tap into a plant’s natural abilities to grow more efficiently in drought, nutrient-limited environments and other challenging circumstances.
Researchers at Noble are developing tools to better understand how roots sense their environment, including the soil in which they grow. By studying calcium as a carrier of messages within the root, they expect to build knowledge that will lead to grazing lands that are more resilient to harsh environments.
Soil organic carbon is an essential piece of regenerating the health of grazing lands and requires a look at roots.
Roots are important to forage plants and to building soil health, but there is a lot more to them than what meets the eye.
Regenerating the land is achievable, but it is not a recipe. It starts with a belief that soil, water, plant, animal and human are all connected, meaning every decision must work with this natural rhythm and not in spite of it.
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.
