What is translocation? Why is it essential for plants?

Translocation in plants occurs in the vascular tissue known as phloem. Translocation is the movement of materials from leaves to other tissue throughout the plants. Without translocation, the food prepared by the plant can’t reach other parts of the plant. The translocation of food (carbohydrates) occurs in the sieve tubes with the help of companion cells.
