Using coloured roots to study root interaction and competition in intercropped legumes and non-legumes
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Giacomo Tosti, Kristian Thorup-Kristensen
The objectives of this work were (i) to test if a species with coloured roots can be used to examine the interaction in a legume-non-legume intercropping system; (ii) to verify the importance of initial root growth on the successive root development of mixture component plants; (iii) to test if the root interaction in the shallow layers has consequences for deep root growth and (iv) to compare the effect of intraspecific and interspecific competition on root development and biomass growth.
