Phénotyper le développement racinaire grâce aux rhizotrons [INRA]

Analyser en continu et sans destruction les plantes en conditions contrôlées est aujourd’hui possible grâce aux technologies de phénotypage haut-débit. Plus spécifiquement, les rhizotrons permettent de caractériser la morphométrie du système racinaire de plantes, isolées ou en association, ainsi que les interactions entre plantes et micro-organismes du sol. L’Inra et son partenaire, la société Inoviaflow ont breveté un tel dispositif.
