Bolinder MA, Angers DA, Belanger G, Michaud R, Laverdiere MR (2002) Root biomass and shoot to root ratios
of perennial forage crops in eastern Canada.
Following observation were recorded 40 days after emergence; shoot and root length, their fresh and dry weights, shoot: root ratio
and total biomass.
The leaf to root ratio
for the corn after soybean system (mean = 1.
Major hydroxystilbenes in the roots of Rheum rhaponticum and Polygonum cuspidatum Stilbene Concentration, mg/g dried root Ratio
The roots were not further resected due to the already compromised crown root ratio
There was almost 3-4mm increase in the clinical crown length in every case maintaining crown: root ratio
of 1:1 which helped in preparing the retaition form.

Therefore, the D5 hosts may have been able to use more of their own photosynthetic products to compensate for the lost biomass, which resulted in a shoot: root ratio
higher than that of the D7 hosts.
