CI-600 In Situ Root Imager Overview

2 December 2016

This video introduces the CI-600 in situ root imager. Observing a root system throughout a plants life cycle is key to understanding overall plant behavior and health, and to improving crop performance. The CI-600 is a minirhizotron that gives plant scientists, crop consultants, and farmers the ability to capture non-destructive, high-resolution, digital images of living roots in soil over multiple growing seasons. The included RootSnap image analysis software allows measurements of the root length, diameter and volume.
