Effect of soil depth and cropping length on the root system growth in liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.)

Effect of soil depth and cropping length on the root system growth in liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.)

Acta Horticulturae ( 344): 518-522

Root cuttings were planted in pots with soil depths of 20, 37, 52, 72 or 89 cm and irrigated to field capacity. Leaf area and the weight and length of the root system were determined over a 4 year period (1989-92). Mean root weight was 81.4 g in the first year but this increased markedly to 753, 1534 and 1930 g, respectively, in the following 3 years. This confirmed the practice of a 4-year cycle for liquorice production. Soil depth had a marked effect on the type of root growth.
