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.
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.
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.
