Societal Impact Statement: Micronutrient deficiency or “hidden hunger” is estimated to affect two billion people worldwide and increasing the micronutrient concentration of food could play an important role in tackling this global challenge. Using a combination of imaging techniques and atomic absorption spectroscopy, we describe a link between roo...
Premise of the Study The key to increased cassava production is balancing the trade‐off between marketable roots and traits that drive nutrient and water uptake. However, only a small number of protocols have been developed for cassava roots. Here, we introduce a set of new variables and methods to phenotype cassava roots and enhance breeding pipel...
Root architectural traits refer to a spatial configuration of the root system providing a critical role in soil resource acquisition. In past decades, several lines of evidence have shown that maize possesses large phenotypic variations, including root architecture closely relating to physiological utility. Thailand has developed a unique maize ger...
