How is food transported in plants?

Answer

  • Food is transported in plants with the help of phloem tissue
  • The food made in the leaves is loaded onto the phloem tubes by utilising the energy from ATP molecules.

From there, the phloem tubes move in both directions , upward and downward, providing food to all parts of the plant.
