Trends in Plant Science - Technology of the month: Exposing Deep Roots: A Rhizobox Laboratory

2020.05.04 | Camilla Mathiesen

Some of the unique Deep Frontier research facilities were presented as ‘Technology of the month’ in ‘Trends in Plant Science’ in the April 2020 issue. The 4 meter high root towers – 12 towers each with 2 units (4 x 1.2 x 0.3 m) were described and illustrated together with the methods developed for studying deep roots (below 1.5 m) such as ingrowth cores, photobox, and tracer methods.
