Description(s):Abstract: The agricultural industry has been developed rapidly over past few decades to overcome the challenges in increasing global food demand and consumption. In order to maintain the increasing food demand, it is required to increase the crop yield under limited resources such as water, nutrient and land allocation. Understanding the interaction between plant and its surrounding environment is important to improve the plant productivity by enhancing ecological factors. Root water uptake, shoot growth and root growth rates are highly influenced by environmental conditions. Therefore, it is necessary to measure and monitor both aboveground and belowground variables over several growing seasons under different field conditions to obtain a wide range of experimental data for modelling and simulations of root water uptake processes. Ph.D. project on “3D Integrative Modelling and Upscaling of Root Water Uptake” aims to derive root water uptake functions in large-scale terrestrial models based on experimental data and modelling results. This research is conducted by the sub-project “B4” of Transregional Collaborative Research Centre 32 (TR32), which is funded by The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). Apart from the field experiments and modelling, the project on “Virtual experiments on root sampling methods to infer specific root traits” focuses on plant growth and sampling in a virtual environment. We will investigate classical sampling schemes to study the possibilities to determine specific sampling methods or combinations of methods to get information about specific traits, which will later be adapted in classical field sampling methods to infer phenotypic root traits. The innovative method can be used in field sampling schemes with specific interests in root system architecture (RSA), or to get information about the specific traits of different genotypes for plant breeding programs to develop new crop varieties to adapt different environments and field conditions.
