https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/unique-imaging-platform-to-advance-research-on-the-development-of-roots
The new system is the first of its kind dedicated to plant science in the U.S. academic research sector and can provide accelerated insight into what affects plant growth.
Unique Imaging Platform to Advance Research on the Development of Roots, Historically, plant scientists have focused on plants from the ground up and in comparison very little is known about roots, researchers could study roots was to physically remove the plant from the ground. Utilizing this system will allow researchers non-destructive access to plant roots throughout the organism’s developmental stages, providing insight into how wide and deep the roots spread, how well they secure moisture
What Roots Can Tell Us About Sustainable Agriculture

Guest blogger, Hallie Thompson discusses how more efficient root systems can impact soil health and the sustainability of crops. 
What Roots Can Tell Us About Sustainable Agriculture, Hallie Thompson, graduate research assistant, background to study the anatomical, morphological and physiological responses of maize roots to drought stress in a field setting. Plant roots, the hidden half, are widely known to be important, despite, on water or nutrient uptake and interactions. However, roots are playing a role in both plant and soil, , the seminal root system establishes the young plant, with nodal (shoot borne) roots emerging thereafter. I
