Abstract

Removal of nodal roots in sweet sorghum caused a progressive reduction in the final area of the leaf blade, slowed down the rhythm of leaf growth, accelerated the production of successive nodal roots and the growth of the 1st tiller and inhibited further growth of the seminal root. The slower growth of the assimilating area reduced the rate of photosynthesis [see preceding abs.], NAR, RGR and DM accumulation. There were corresponding changes in specific leaf area, LAR and shoot-root ratio.
