Auxins, which are naturally found in plants, trigger root formation. Scientists are testing ways to improve how auxins are absorbed and used by plant cells.
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.
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.
Roots are important to forage plants and to building soil health, but there is a lot more to them than what meets the eye.
For most agricultural enterprises, success and long-term viability ultimately hinges on soil health.
