Define root pressure

Root pressure is a force or the hydrostatic pressure generated in the roots that help in driving the fluids and other ions from the soil in upwards directions into the plant’s vascular tissue – Xylem. This process is produced by osmotic pressure in the cells of the root. Root pressure is more common during the spring seasons before the leaves develop and the rate of the transpiration is rapid.
