how translocation is takes place in sugarcane
Asked by balachandran_ps | 7th Sep, 2014, 06:39: AM
Translocation is the transport of all dissolved material within a plant or the conduction of soluble food material from one part of a plant to the other.
Sucrose (C12H22O11 ) is the major carbohydrate formed, used and stored by the sugarcane plant.
The translocation of sucrose and other carbohydrates and nutrients takes place mainly in the phloem of the sugarcane plant. These plant foods move to the tissues utilizing them. Thus, food can move from the leaves where manufactured, to the stalk, regions of growth, and roots. The loading and unloading of the phloem elements could be by diffusion in the direction of a concentration gradient
