Manufactured food in the plant is transported through the
Manufactured food in the plant is transported through the phloem. Phloem is a specialized tissue in plants responsible for the transportation of nutrients, including the carbohydrates produced by photosynthesis, from the leaves to other parts of the plant where they are needed for growth and energy. This process is called translocation and is powered by the pressure flow mechanism, which involves the active transport of sugars from source to sink tissues. In contrast, the xylem is responsible for transporting water and minerals from the roots to the rest of the plant. The cambium is a tissue responsible for secondary growth, while the cortex is a tissue located in the outermost layer of the stem or root.
