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.
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.
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.
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.
