Investigations on the importance of the root systems of cultivated plants part 2 the influence of root trimming on plant growth root morphology transpiration and nitrogen uptake in relation to the soil water content and nitrogen fertilization



Zeitschrift fuer Acker- und Pflanzenbau 143(1): 1-17



In mild treatments of up to 25% trimming the root mass increased. In severe treatments the reduction in root growth occurred. A relatively severe effect of root trimming on shoot growth was found in maize. Shoot growth decreased corresponding to the degree of root trimming. In barley, however, shoot growth was only slightly affected by trimming up to 75% of the root system. Increased trimming resulted in a reduciton in the main root corresponding to the degree of trimming. In the lateral roots an increase in root length resulted as the degree of trimming increased. The transpiration was strongly decreased by trimming, resulting in total growth of the plants. The rate of water uptake was increased by root trimming as high soil water levels. With root trimming an increase in N uptake occurred. In these reactions maize was more sensitive than barley to higher N concentrations in the soil.
