Observing a root system throughout a plant’s life cycle is key to understanding overall plant behaviour 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. Durable and lightweight, the CI-600 is a portable minirhizotron that is easy to transport to any field location and can be used in sites with root tubes across a range of treatments or conditions. Our free root analysis software, RootSnap!, quickly and easily calculates parameters including root length, area, volume, diameter & branching angle.
