Multi root Plants (Multi root Nutmeg)
The Multiroot technology can enhance the plant growth potential twice or thrice compared to a normal plant. The practice of grafting additional rootstocks has broad soil adaptability, rapid initial development, drought resistance, early bearing, high productivity, disease resistance, plants longevity and lower the incidence of wilt.
Roots are essential for plant productivity and serve a variety of functions .The architecture of a multi root system may influence its ability to withstand uprooting by wind. It gives better root anchorage that enables the trees to resist strong winds and other adverse conditions.
If the roots of the plants were injured or diseased, the plants will no longer absorb water and nutrients from the soil and the plants will eventually die because of lack of nutrients from the soil. In multiroot plants, the other rootstocks will support the build-up and the tree will survive.
The rootstocks in multroot pants absorb more water and ions than self-rooted plants and transport these water and ions to the aboveground scion. This type of roots increases the nutrient uptake and utilization efficiency in plants.
