Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Sucrose is extracted from cane sugar or beet sugar. It is made up of glucose and fructose and is a good source of carbon and energy. In sugarcane plants, accumulation of sucrose is important in elongation of internodes. Thus metabolism of sucrose plays a major role in the growth of the sugarcane plant.
