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.
Noble Research Institute assistant professor Larry York, Ph.D., recently received the inaugural Annals of Botany Plants (AoBP) Early Career Open Science (ECOS) award.
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.
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 using advanced imaging technology to study roots and increase heat and drought tolerance in winter wheat used for forage.
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.
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.
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.
