Physiological responses of lupin roots to soil compaction

  title={Physiological responses of lupin roots to soil compaction},
  author={Brian James Atwell},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
An increase in root diameter in response to high soil strength is well documented in a number of annual crop species, including barley (Wilson et al., 1977), pea (Eavis, 1967), maize (Barley, 1962) and cotton and peanuts (Taylor and Ratcliff, 1969). More information on the occurrence of radial swelling of roots of woody species is required before universality of the phenomenon is accepted. In Lupinus spp., which are notoriously tolerant to compaction in coarse-textured soils (Jarvis, pers. comm… CONTINUE READING
