KEYNOTE: A critical role for root models in feeding 10e10 people
There is an urgent need to develop crops with reduced nutrient and water requirements. The complexity of relevant processes overwhelms conventional empirical approaches. Structural-functional modeling of root systems has a unique role in providing important insights into the root phenome, which will focus empirical research on the most productive avenues, and inform crop ideotype development.
