root system morphology across 17 commercially available tomato rootstocks. They found ‘Beaufort’ rootstock had the thinnest average root system with the shortest total root length and largest specific root length. In contrast, ‘RST-106’ had the longest

weight and root to shoot dry weight ratio increased, while specific root length and absolute water content were reduced under drought. Among the creeping bentgrass varieties evaluated, higher growth was observed in Independence and Crystal Bluelinks
