Enjoy our monthly roundup of the latest published research conducted with help from our instruments.


1. Microclimate and turmeric yield under different tree species    

CI-110 Plant Canopy Imager

Journal of Agrometeorology

December 2016

Amandeep Singh, R. Sharma, S.K. Chauhan, D. Aurora.

“The impact of trees on associated crops appears to be mainly competition for bio-resources between crops and trees. Selection of suitable tree species with appropriate canopy and crops with partial shade tolerance and better yield potential are important aspects in agroforestry system…” Keep reading.


2. Transgenically altered lignin biosynthesis affects photosynthesis and water relations of field-grown Populus trichocarpa

CI-202 Portable Laser Leaf Area Meter 

Biomass and Bioenergy

March 2017

Renée M. Marchin, Anna T. Stout, Aletta A. Davis, John S. King.

“Concerns over energy security and environmental sustainability have stimulated interest in development of high-yield, low-lignin trees for bioenergy. Black cottonwood (Populus trichocarpa) has been targeted as a potential bioenergy species due to its high productivity, but it is unclear how transgenically altered lignin biosynthesis will affect plant function...” Keep reading.


3. Root xylem plasticity to improve water use and yield in water-stressed soybean

CI-203 Handheld Laser Leaf Area Meter

Journal of Experimental Botany

January 2017

Silvas J. Prince, Mackensie Murphy, Raymond N. Mutava, Lorellin A. Durnell, Babu Valliyodan, J. Grover Shannon, Henry T. Nguyen

“We tested the hypothesis that increasing the number of metaxylem vessels would enhance the efficiency of water uptake in soybean (Glycine max) and decrease the yield gap in water-limited environments...” Keep reading.


4. Chitosan alleviates phytotoxicity caused by boron through augmented polyamine metabolism and antioxidant activities and reduced boron concentration in Cucumis sativus L.

CI-340 Handheld Photosynthesis System

Acta Physiologiae Plantarum

January 2017

Rashad Mukhtar Balal, Muhammad Adnan, Shahid, Muhammad Mansoor Javaid, Zafar Iqbal, Guodong David Liu, Lincoln Zotarelli, Naeem Khan


“The aim of this investigation was to study an association among boron-induced oxidative stress, antioxidant system and polyamine metabolism in cucumber Cucumis sativus (L) plants. Furthermore, it was also investigated whether chitosan would increase the antioxidant activity and polyamine concentration that could induce tolerance to boron-induced oxidative stress.” Keep reading.


5. Introducing a shrub species in a degraded steppe shifts fine root dynamics and soil organic carbon accumulations, in northwest China

CI-600 In-Situ Root Imager 

Ecological Engineering

March 2017

Zongrui Laia, Jiabin Liub, Yuqing Zhanga, Bin Wua, Shugao Qina, Yanfei Suna, Jutao Zhanga, Wei Fenga, Keyu Faa, Yuxuan Baia

“In the semiarid and arid regions of China, the introduction of shrubs into degraded steppe is generally considered a crucial tool to facilitate vegetation restoration and reduce desertification.” Keep reading.
