Description

Abstract Text:
Lignocellulosic bioenergy crops will be primarily grown on marginal lands to avoid competition with food production and curb greenhouse gas emissions. Intermittent, patchy, and limited availabilities of resources like nitrogen (N) and water severely compromise productivity under such environments. Therefore, sustainable production of bioenergy crops will entail developing varieties that can maintain high levels of biomass productivity under sub-optimal N and water conditions. Root architecture is an important determinant of productivity under both nitrogen limitations and drought-prone environments; but the genetic bases of these root traits are poorly understood and thus difficult to manipulate. In this proposal we focus on roots as a venue for engineering robust productivity under sub-optimal N and water environments.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
