The focus of this manual is the description of relatively high-throughput, low-cost and precise root phenotyping techniques developed for drought studies on rice. Field phenotyping protocols for root studies in precise drought-stress treatments, as well as a range of root phenotyping systems, are described. Protocols to associate root traits with other plant traits and productivity are also included.
