The possibility of estimating root length per unit of soil volume and using it as the solution of the Buffon problem correlated for a 3-dimensional case was studied. Two methods of root length estimation were compared: calculation of root intersections with the soil shear and washing out soil samples. The 1st method was more accurate and not as difficult to perform as the other.
