There is a need to breed for root systems architectures (RSAs) that optimise soil resource acquisition. This requires high resolution and high-throughput quantification of RSA in as natural an environment as possible. Current imaging techniques are limited by cost, reproducibility, throughput and complexity. This thesis describes (1) the construction of a low cost, high-resolution, root phenotyping platform that requires no sophisticated equipment which is adaptable to most laboratory and… CONTINUE READING
