Radial fluxes (m s–1) (left) and (minus) absolute xylem water potential (MPa) (right) along a 3-week-old root system of lupine simulated in scenario 2.

Hydraulic conductivity of roots

Radial and axial hydraulic conductivities are key parameters for understanding and modelling root water uptake. Despite their importance, there is limited experimental information relating to how the radial and axial...
