Abstract
Carbohydrates in the form of free sugars, starch, dextrin, and fructans are normally used by the plant in the production of new tissues or degraded down to release chemical energy which is necessary to sustain life. Carbohydrates are also the primary source of reserve energy stored in the vegetative parts of biennial and perennial plants. Reserves of available carbohydrates are essential to the survival of and the production of plant tissues during periods when carbohydrate utilization exceed photosynthetic activity.
