Soybean Root System Architecture Trait Study through Genotypic, Phenotypic, and Shape-Based Clusters

Figure 2

Five iRoot categories developed using 13 descriptive traits. (a) Root trait performance generated from the mean trait values of the top 10 ranked genotypes based on iRoot metrics at 9 days after germination. Data was compiled from 292 soybean accessions (; genotypic BLUPs are represented by the black dots). Segmented root images of the top ranked genotypes representing the five iRoot categories: (b) nutrient foraging, PI 479713; (c) drought tolerant, PI 458506; (c) beard, PI 430596; (d) umbrella, PI 438139; and (e) maximum, PI 507487 displayed at 9 days after germination.
