Relationship between root morphology and grain yield of wheat

Relationship between root morphology and grain yield of wheat

This article is looking into differences in root morphology of different wheat genotypes and their impact on grain yield. The authors conclude that under water stress crop water extraction from the soil depends on root distribution. They further suggest that the synthetic derived genotypes with superior root traits, improved WUE and higher grain yield in water deficit can be combined in crosses with sources of resistance to root diseases, such as crown rot, to improve the adaptation of wheat.
