How to Measure 7 Types of Stress in Plants Using Leaf Spectroscopy

Leaf Spectroscopy can measure seven common stresses that crops encounter. The crop leaf stressors are drought, nutrient deficiency, temperature, pests, diseases, salinity, and herbicides. Spectral changes due to physiological, anatomical, and chemical alterations triggered by stress are used in its measurement. Various methods are visual, multispectral, hyperspectral, thermal imaging, and light interaction. Yield depends on… Continue reading…

Comparing the Usability Between CID Bio-Science’s CI-600 Root Imager and an Inexpensive Endoscope

In the evolving field of agriculture, our tools can significantly influence the outcomes of our research and farming practices. Recently, a comparative study was undertaken to analyze the usability of the CID Bio-Science’s CI-600 Root Imager against a more budget-friendly option, the Depstech ds450 endoscope. Here, we delve into the findings presented in a poster… Continue reading…

How Rootstocks Affect Graft Hydraulic Balance

Rootstocks of different genotypes have varying hydraulic conductance. Rootstock’s hydraulic conductivity will influence a scion’s water relations. Rootstocks influence a scion’s hydraulic conductance through its root system size and vigor, hydraulic signaling, and direct signaling. Dwarfing and drought tolerance are the two impacts of a rootstock’s hydraulic conductance on grafted trees. Grafting scions to rootstocks… Continue reading…

Guide: Connecting Root Traits to Functions

A growing interest in connecting root traits to functions has identified significant patterns. Several root traits can be involved in a single plant function, and the importance of trait contribution will differ depending on species, biomes, seasons, environment, and soil types. The widely studied morphological and architectural root traits are root length density, root diameter… Continue reading…

Understanding Alpine Growth Dynamics in a Warming World: A Root Imaging Study

Every little bit of information counts in the scientific journey to understand the impacts of climate change. Today, we’d like to spotlight a fascinating study by Patrick Möhl, Raphael S. von Büren, and Erika Hiltbrunner, which challenges previous assumptions about plant growth in alpine environments under a warming climate. This research, primarily using root imagery,… Continue reading…
