Phenotyping Tomato Root Developmental Plasticity in Response to Salinity in Soil Rhizotrons
Comparison of root phenotyping methods in tomato. Root system architecture traits were analyzed in three tomato cultivars under salt or control conditions in agar plates, pouches, or rhizotrons: (a) MRL: main root length; (b) TRS: total root size. Roots of 10-day-old plants treated or not with salt for 6 days were analyzed with EZ-Rhizo software. The data represent the (standard error) of 20 replicates from two independent experiments. Different letters within each panel indicate significant differences according to Duncan’s multiple range test, .
