Roots are the important underground part of all vascular plants. This part of the plant is mainly responsible for anchoring it down into the ground and absorbing the essential elements, nutrients, and water from the soil. It is also used to store food.
Fibrous roots – These are bushy roots in which thin, moderately branching roots grow from the stem.
Examples – Rice, wheat, maize, marigold, banana and all monocotyledons.
