Biomass and morphology of Pinus radiata coarse root components in a sub-humid temperate silvopastoral system

Gautam, A Madan; Mead, Donald; Clinton, Peter; Chang, Scott X


Understanding the dynamics and distribution of root system components and how they are affected by pasture-tree interactions in silvopastoral systems are important for better management of agroforestry systems. The biomass and morphology of coarse root components were studied for 3- and 4-year-old Pinus radiata clonal and seedling trees growing with or without lucerne (Medicago sativa). Root:shoot ratio and lateral and vertical root biomass were greater by 1.5, 2.3 and 6.1 times, respectively,...[Show more]
