Measuring drought-stressed maize plants. Rainout shelters are moved off field during sunny periods.

We have access to five moveable greenhouses, or rainout shelters, at Rock Springs to research the relationships of root traits to drought tolerance in maize and common bean.

Field 300 was designed for studies of plant root adaptations for low soil phosphorus availability.

We have access to four 1 acre fields that have been divided into low and high nitrogen split plots.
