The lawn grass (Cynodondactylon) needs to be mowed frequently to prevent its overgrowth. Which tissue is responsible for its rapid growth?

Answer :

Meristematic tissue is responsible for the rapid growth of lawn grass.

The meristems which occur at the tips of roots and shoots and produce primary tissues are called apical meristems.

When lawn is mowed the apical meristems get trimmed and the growth of grass stops. But the growth of lateral branches continues making the lawn look bushy.
