Larry York: Root functional phenomics- Using phenotyping to understand soil resource acquisition

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.

Fewer Roots for Deeper Rooting and Greater Fertilizer Uptake?

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.

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.

Plants in the Spotlight: Measuring Shoots From Images

Noble researchers are using advanced imaging technology to study roots and increase heat and drought tolerance in winter wheat used for forage.

Measuring the Hidden Half of Forages

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.

Why Roots Matter to Soil, Plants and You

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.
