Effect of root pruning on growth and yield of Amaranthus spp

Effect of root pruning on growth and yield of Amaranthus spp

Journal of Agricultural Science, Tokyo Nogyo Daigaku 39(1): 10-20

Seedling roots of A. hypochondriacus and A. caudatus were pruned to remove one-third or two-thirds of the length at transplanting, or were pruned from one or both sides in pots when direct-sown. Root pruning reduced plant height and leaf number. Plant height was particularly affected when pruning was severe. Root pruning stimulated lateral root development but had no net effect on root systems.
