Investigating Root Growth in Wheat Application

In this poster we describe a rhizotron system 1.4 m high, 0.5 m wide and 0.08 m deep. This is sufficient size to allow the wheat to be grown to maturity and to allow the use of buriable soil moisture and related sensors.

We present preliminary experiments and report data from Rht NILs (near isogenic lines) in a mercia background that are affected by nutrient distribution. We also describe an irrigation system that allows spatial variation in soil moisture in both vertical and horizontal directions.
