Kirkhouse Trust – Benchmarking Traits Controlling the Plant Water Budget in “Orphan” Legumes

The difficulty of comparing crops species for their “drought tolerance” is that “tolerance” is often confused with simple differences in plant water needs. For instance peanut develops a larger leaf area, has longer duration and higher yield potential than cowpea, but needs more water to fulfil its growth cycle. Both peanut and cowpea are considered drought tolerant, but each species fits specific environments where the rainfall and length of the growing season matches their water and duration requirement.

Lysimetric Facility

     Why is it important? Lysimetric approach- the innovation How it works Importance to crop improvement Uniqueness of the facility and    relevance to other locations Re-constructing the drought puzzle The two different angles this research led to Further Why is it important? Phenotyping, or measuring key traits of crops such as drought-tolerance, is crucial … Continue reading Lysimetric Facility

Phenotyping

Phenotyping After the given plant phenotype is reasonably understood and the potential economic value of the phenotype assessed in silico, ultimately, the tools enabling massive screening of such phenotype is inevitable to assist the breeding programs. To encounter the typical breeding population size and screen for the phenotype relevant for crop production improvement in target … Continue reading Phenotyping
