The effect of groundwater rises of 0.6 to 1.5 m on winter wheat grown in loess soils (represented by gley-colluvial soils, colluvial soils, pararendzinas, gley-chernozems and parabraunerde-chernozems) was investigated. An increased production of short roots and lateral roots, decreased rooting depth, and lower ratio of root mass to root penetration intensity were observed at higher groundwater level.
