Give reason non translocation of food reduces photosynthesis

Dear student,

Translocation is necessary because without it, the food prepared by the leaves cannot reach other parts of the plant. In plants, the synthesis of sugars takes place in the leaves by the process of photosynthesis. Hormones are synthesised away from their target site.

Yes, because photosynthesis involves making of food by leaves. If food will not be translocated to other parts of the plant, food will remain store in leaf only and leaf will swell up, hence this will affect the process of photosynthesis. 😁
