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

With a growing world population and a changing climate, understanding how agriculturally important plants respond to drought is crucial.
Crop Roots Enact Austerity Measures During Drought to Bank Water, St. Louis, MO — With a growing, of their water through their roots. But there are different kinds of roots in different kinds of plants, by which grasses take up water are the crown roots, which are unique to this plant family and grow from, . Excavated maize seedling showing crown roots beginning to grow from the base of the shoot (marked by red arrowhead). Image is courtesy of Jose Sebastian.

What Roots Can Tell Us About Sustainable Agriculture
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/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

Until now, the only way for plant scientists to observe in-field root development has been to extract roots from the soil. Imaging technology will enable research without adversely affecting plant development, according to the organizations.
(Agri-View) Root Research Uses Real-Time Imaging, Advanced imaging technology will allow real-time gathering of plant root-growth data in a non-destructive manner, according to Valent BioSciences Corporation and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. The organizations have finalized a multi-year agreement in the area of root research. Until now, the only way for plant scientists to observe in-field root development has been to extract roots from the soil. Imaging technology will enable
