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.
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.
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.
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.
