A study was carried out in a maize field in order (i) to study the horizontal variability of the root length per unit volume (Lv), and (ii) to compare two methods of calculation of distances between roots: the first was based on the classical calculation of half the mean distance between neighbouring roots (HMDR), and the second was a direct graphical method carried out on root maps, on 5 superposed horizontal planes. Lv was measured at silking in adjacent, 10−3m3-sized parallelepipeds, and in… CONTINUE READING
