The release of rhizodeposits differs depending on the root position and is closely related to the assimilated carbon (C) supply. Therefore, quantifying the C partitioning over a short period may provide crucial information for clarifying root-soil carbon metabolism. A non-invasive method for visualising the translocation of recently assimilated C into the root system inside the rhizobox was established using $$^{11}$$CO$$_{2}$$ labelling and the positron-emitting tracer imaging system. The spatial distribution of recent $$^{11}$$C-photoassimilates translocated and released in the root system and soil were visualised for white lupin ($$Lupinus albus$$) and soybean ($$Glycine max$$). Our method enabled the quantification of the spatial C allocations in roots and soil, which may help to elucidate the relationship between C metabolism and nutrient cycling at specific locations of the root-soil system in response to environmental conditions over relatively short periods.
