Trying to study roots is challenging because, well, roots are normally underground and hard to measure. But not impossible, Dr. Darin Eastburn and his crew (including masters student Liwei Wen, undergrad Jeff Hausen, and Nan Jang) dug plants, cleaned roots and prepared the plants for travel back to campus where the roots will be measured for length, diameter and number of root tips. This is part of a study funded by the Illinois Soybean Association.

Another windy day at the NIARC that is once again limiting spraying but not the rating of herbicide trials.
