Abstract

The studying of the growth and development of the root system is a matter of great interest for all the crops in the country. Observing the development of the root system suggests the mechanical work that must be applied in order to avoid the damaging of the roots. 

The role of the root system is to absorb water, nutrients and to fix the soil. In the case of varieties of shrubs studied we can mention that on the same type of soil, the varieties of raspberry and blackberry roots have reached the depth of 25 cm, the red varieties of gooseberries, red currant and black currant to a depth of 15 cm.

Studying the roots taken out of the pots of the varieties of conifer, Thuja occidentalis holmstrup, Thuja Smaragd and Thuja Columnaris we could notice that they reached to a depth of 15-18-20.0 cm. The development and root growth generally depends on environmental factors, on the species, on the variety, on rootstock and also on agricultural
technology.
