How are the roots useful to the plants? Give any two points.
There are many parts of a plant, including the roots. Roots are very important for the plant because:
• They suck the water and nutrients up out of the soil and into the plant. But the roots are not only good for the plant, they are good for soil.
• When it rains, the roots hold the soil in place so it is not washed away. When soil gets washed away it is called erosion. In places with a lot of rain and not a lot of trees, mudslides can be a big problem. Mudslides can hurt people and animals and also take away all the good soil, making it difficult to grow plants.
• They help to absorb nutrients and water from the soil which are very essential for a plant.
• It also stores some of the nutrients and food
• They help in the classification of the plant based on the level of organization. There are 3 main root systems - Taproots, Fibrous, roots, and adventitious roots.
