Soybean Root Distribution Related to Claypan Soil Properties and Apparent Soil Electrical Conductivity

  title={Soybean Root Distribution Related to Claypan Soil Properties and Apparent Soil Electrical Conductivity},
  author={D. Brenton Myers and Newell R. Kitchen and Kenneth A. Sudduth and Robert E. Sharp and Randall J. Miles},
Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] yield in claypan soils varies systematically with soil properties and landscape position. This is likely caused by soil interactions with soybean roots. Field observations of soybean root distribution are needed to reveal its effect on yield variability. This study examined profi le distributions of soybean root length density (RLD) and average root diameter (ARD) as a function of landscape position, depth to claypan (DTC), apparent soil electrical conductivity… CONTINUE READING
