Therefore, the pull-out test of plant root
systems was conducted to measure the extreme tension value.
Ectomycorrhizae are a type of mycorrhizae that procedure a dense sheath around the physical structure of plant roots
, from which the hyphae grow; in endomycorrhizae, mycelium is entrenched within the root tissue, not forming a sheath around the root system.
###Soil salinity profile of the eggplant plant root
Bacteria were isolated from the non-rhizosphere soil,rhizosphere soil and plant root
samples using the methods of Odunfa and Oso , Akinynaju and Fadayomi , Oyeyiola and Hussain [13,14] and Oyeyiola .
With funding from USDA's Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES) National Research Initiative (NRI), Mario Biondini at North Dakota State University found a way to more accurately predict water uptake from plant roots
by improving upon the West, Brown, and Enquist (WBE) general model for scaling laws in biological networks.
Gardner's (1960) model is one of the most commonly used analyses describing the dynamic aspects of water uptake by a single plant root
. Gardner (1960) used the single root approach to describe the dynamic aspect of water uptake by a plant, and to examine the soil water suction required at the boundary between the plant root
and the soil in order to maintain a constant rate of water movement to the plant.
Watering was stopped 24 to 36 h before radiographs were taken to reduce soil water content for a better contrast with plant root
These studies have mainly focused on the mechanical mechanisms of soil reinforcement by plant root
One of the biggest underground markets on the planet-nutrient trading between plant roots
and fungi--turns out to run on a system of reciprocal rewards for good suppliers and less business for bad ones.
Of particular interest to Douds were results showing that plots farmed with two organic systems had greater AM fungi spore populations and produced greater plant root
colonization than did soils from a conventional corn-soybean rotation system.--By Jim Core, ARS.
Conventional agriculture focuses on pumping nutrients through the soil to the plant root
. This practice can lead to compacted, infertile soil, erosion, and water pollution.
Similarly soil water flow is controlled by the potential gradient between the soil and the plant root
