Focussing on legume roots at BOKU

Within the EU-project EUROLEGUME (; 2014-2017) at BOKU, Gernot Bodner and Boris Rewald investigated the root system diversity of European pea and faba bean varieties and were able to identify stress-resistant genetic resources. The development of new phenotyping and machine learning methods to identify “root-efficient” genotypes made BOKU a particularly successful project partner.
