Guest blogger, Hallie Thompson discusses how more efficient root systems can impact soil health and the sustainability of crops. 
on water or nutrient uptake and interactions. However, roots are playing a role in both plant and soil health. And soil health is key, not only in long-term agriculture, but also in seasonal water, observe the nodal (adult) root system of maize growing under water deficit conditions using a rainout, soil profile, which is often very hard, hot and/or dry. The end goal of this research is to characterize the metabolic response to field drought conditions, and to discover key areas in metabolism
