Definition of feeder root

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Roots of plants have one of two main purposes - the first is to hold the plant in the ground by what are known as as anchor roots

The second purpose is to take up nutrients and water - these so-called feeder roots are smaller and relatively short-lived compared to the anchor roots
