Abstract

The purposes of this study were to determine (1) the range of root-pulling resistance that exists among inbred lines, (2) the repeatability of root-pulling measurements as well as other root characteristics in differing environmental conditions, and (3) the relationship between root pulling resistance and root characteristics such as root spread, root dry weight, root abundance, and root rot resistance.
