This report describes some preliminary pot and field experiments, which scope the use of electricity as a rapid, non-destructive method for the measurement of the spatial distribution of tree and crop roots.

This report is relevant to forestry, agroforestry and plant breeding researchers, in projects where root mass and root location are measured.
