Root Scanner is a modern plant physiology instrument developed and designed by Top Cloud Agriculture. It is mainly used to analyze and observe the growth status and topological structure of crop roots. At present, the root scanner is widely used in modern plant research, breeding, etc. We know that the root system of a plant is its main organ for obtaining mineral nutrients and water. At the same time, the root system of a plant also has the important function of fixing plants and resisting wind and rain. Therefore, in modern lodging-resistant crop observation and lodging-resistant varieties, the root scanner is also widely used. For example, using a root scanner to study the lodging resistance of different wheat varieties.
Wheat is a gramineous plant widely grown around the world. Caryopsis of wheat is one of the staple foods of human beings. After grinding into flour, it can be used to make bread, steamed bread, biscuits, noodles and other foods; fermented into beer, alcohol, Liquor. Wheat is the top priority in the food systems of countries around the world, and it is a commercial grain with rich nutrition and high economic value. Wheat has a wide range of uses. In addition to being ground into flour for direct consumption, wheat starch, wheat straw, wheat bran, and wheat germ all have different uses.
Wheat is the main food crop in China, and the planting area is very extensive, which is of great significance for ensuring China's food security. Now most of the place is busy with the autumn harvest, after which wheat planting will begin. During wheat growth, lodging often occurs due to various reasons. This not only affects the quality and yield of wheat, but also increases farmers' costs during harvest.
This is because the root system of wheat belongs to the fibrous root system, which is mainly distributed in the soil layer of 0 to 40 cm. Generally, the root system in the cultivation layer of 0 to 20 cm accounts for 60 to 70% of the total root volume. Consists of primary and secondary roots. Therefore, the grip is unstable, and a lodging phenomenon often occurs. A good root system is found by the root system analyzer to be a good foundation for plants to normally promote growth and development. The key condition for the development of the root system is the quality of the soil and plenty of nutrients, so that the crop root system can have a good soil environment to grow and develop. Based on this, the rational use of pesticides can also effectively promote the development of wheat root system.
