Abstract

The removal of four of five roots of 7–8-day-old wheat plants resulted in the activation of lateral root growth and the initiation of lateral root primordia on the remained root as compared to the main root of intact plants. The extent of this growth response depended on placing cut surface above or beneath the surface of the nutrient solution. The measurement of the IAA and cytokinin contents showed accumulation of these hormones in the root of experimental plants as compared to the main root of intact plants. IAA accumulation was correlated with the number of lateral roots and their primordia. The analysis of hormonal balance and their transport from the shoot to the root permits discussing the involvement of these hormones and their interaction in the control of root growth at the stages of both primordium initiation and development and lateral root elongation.
