To develop research with the guidance of Dr. Natanael Santiago Pereira evaluating a nutrient dynamic without soil-plant system. During the course of his work, he developed new methodologies for the installation of acrylic tunbes for the CI-600 Root Imager, as well as new methodologies for the evaluation of the amount of fibers and roots, through binarization and liminalization of the images obtained with the scanner. It also determined the volume, surface area and length by fiber and root diameter classes, by analyzing the fiber-root mean root diameter of the image obtained with the scanner using image editing software and software from Embrapa (Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation) Called the Safira, for the analysis of root images.
