A method of estimating the root length of cereals per unit volume of soil

, : A method of estimating the root length of cereals per unit volume of soil. Mitteilungen der Deutschen Bodenkundlichen Gesellschaft 55(2): 637-642

Using soil samples from 30 locations root length (cm) per cubic centimetre of soil was calculated for winter wheat and other cereals. Root growth was calculated for leaf and ear formation, flowering and ripening stages, and length per cubic centimetre at ear formation, using multiple regressional analysis. Parameters included physical and chemical soil characteristics and climatogical factors.

The roots are laid out on a flat surface, and a count is made of the number of intersections between the roots and random straight lines. Then the total length = [pi]NA/2H, where N is the number of intersections, A the area within which the roots...
