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.
