RADIMAX - deeper rooting means stronger growth and better stress tolerance
RadiMax is helping plant breeders choose varieties that develop deeper roots to withstand the more frequent droughts that climate change will bring
Farmers and amenity managers faces great challenges with regards to forage and turf growth
Climate change has already had an effect on agriculture, parklands, and other areas of green turf grass
The need for robust, drought-tolerant crops and turf grasses has never been greater.
All plant material going into the screening facility will be subject to DNA profiling
Screening results and DNA profiles will then be analyzed at the computer cluster to generate genomic selection models, which breeders will use to predict rooting depth of new breeding material
