Deep Root Lab facilities

Objective

Develop a unique facility for deep root research (the DeepRootLab) for this project, for inspiration and for attracting cooperation with other scientists, - also after the project period

We need to develop equipment and methods for the study of deep rooting and its effects. We will develop root research facilities at three “levels”, 1) a permanent DeepRootLab, allowing intensive simultaneous studies of root growth and various aspects of root function, 2) mobile facilities for studying deep rooting at other sites and 3) semi-field facilities for screening, more detailed measurements and method testing.
