Improving the root systems is one of the important strategies to alleviate yield reduction under drought environments. In chickpea, the rooting profile influenced the seed yield under terminal drought environments. Especially, root length density(RLD) in 15-30 played an important role and deeper root systems had positive effects when the drought was severe...................
