Lorene Siegwart, UMR Eco&Sols, Montpellier, France, will present«An innovative method to assess in situ root decomposition at different soil depths: optical scanner-based images analysis» Fr, 26.05.2023, 13-13:30 CET, Zoom link: https://bokuvienna.zoom.us/j/92666640682
We amassed in Montpellier for a MaxRoot-MIXROOT-C labelling workshop; superbly hosted by Isabelle Bertrand and her team at INRAE. We presented, discussed and developed new ideas and old ones, to come to a consensus on how best to label the plants and analyse the results. The open knowledge exchange was a credit to the organisation„Montpellier Workshop“ weiterlesen
VIDEO of the MaxRoot-C sampling tour
Soil: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the MaxRoot-C sampling team (Thünen & Agroscope). Its continuing mission: to sample roots of main crops across Europe. To seek out root biomass of 10 different varieties and to assess if an optimized variety selection for more root biomass could increase soil carbon. To boldly go„VIDEO of the MaxRoot-C sampling tour“ weiterlesen
Tenure track position in Biogeochemistry of soil/plant interactions
We are going to open a Tenure Track position at INRAE in Montpellier. This 3-yr Tenure Track contract will be followed by a permanent position of Senior Scientist (Directeur de Recherche) at INRAE.

First root samples
The first root samples have been taken for the MaxRoot-C project. We have 15 different winter wheat varieties growing in 11 different countries all across Europe. We want to optimize the variety selection towards increased root biomass while not compromising yield and yield stability. For this, Juliane Hirte from Agroscope went to one of these„First root samples“ weiterlesen
