Changes in physiological and morphological traits of roots and shoots of wheat in response to different depths of waterlogging

Malik, Al Imran; Colmer, Timothy D; Lambers, Hans; Schortemeyer, Marcus


The growth reduction of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) during and after waterlogging stress depends on the depth of water from the soil surface. In a pot experiment with 3-week-old plants, soil was waterlogged for 14 d at the surface, or at 100 or 200 mm below the surface, and pots were then drained to assess recovery. A fully drained treatment kept at field capacity served as control. During waterlogging, the relative growth rate of roots decreased more than that of shoots (by 6-27% for shoots,...[Show more]
