Results of this study showed that carbohydrates stored in the roots of western wheatgrass are utilized for regrowth following clipping of the aboveground foliage. Shoots remained dependent on carbohydrates stored in roots until sufficient photosynthetic leaf surface was developed to supply carbon to the shoots. During early phenophases, the partitioning of carbohydrates between shoots and roots was identical, indicating equal metabolic demands for carbon from both the shoot and root systems… CONTINUE READING
