Functional Relationship Between Sugarcane Root Biomass and Length for Cropping System Applications


Sugarcane root length density (RLD, m/m3) and root biomass are key characteristics for respectively determining: (i) the crop nutrient and water uptake capacity, and (ii) carbon partitioning in plants and balance in soil. In previous studies, often only one of these parameters was measured. It is therefore useful to link the RLD and root biomass density… (More)
