Root depth: a trait to increase water use and yield of wheat

Severini, Alan David

Description

Crops with deeper roots could potentially capture more soil resources and as a consequence yield more. However, as sampling roots by soil coring is challenging, there are few examples of genetic diversity determined under field conditions. Canopy temperature, an indicator of transpiration, could be used instead of direct coring to screen for wheat varieties with increased access to deep water and hence deep roots in the field. In this thesis we aimed (i) to...[Show more]
