Root-soil interactions and adaptation strategies of plants in response to soil water availability

D. Cynthia Maan from TU Delft presented at the IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Agriculture and Forestry in October 2019, where she and her co-authors studied the coupled action of water uptake and root development of maize in potting soil under greenhouse conditions. Synchronous realtime measurements of the co-evolving soil moisture fields and root distributions were performed. Understanding of the feedback loops between the soil moisture distribution and root development opens new pathways for boosting natural adaptation and climate resilience of plants.
