Nutrition in Plants


Give a brief description of the process of synthesis of food in green plants.


Photosynthesis: The process by which green plants make their own food from carbon dioxide and water by using sunlight energy in the presence of chlorophyll is called photosynthesis.

The synthesis of food in plants usually occurs in leaves. Leaves are the food factories of the plants. The leaves of plants can synthesize food (photosynthesis) because they contain green pigment chlorophyll. Carbon dioxide from air is taken through the tiny pores present on the surface of the leaves. Water and minerals present in the soil are absorbed by the roots and transported to the leaves.
