The efficiency and magnitude of translocation of food material are evident from the annual yields of various crops and fruits. Now, the question is what is the mechanism of translocation? Diffusion is too slow a process to account for the known velocities of translocation. Moreover, often the direction of movement is from lesser concentration to greater concentration.
