Summary

Trials on leaf abscission of cassava led to the conclusion that the leaf lamina is necessary, and must receive light, to prevent abscission of the petiole. The abscission rate of old leaves is increased by the presence of an active apex, but is not affected by the carbohydrate requirements of the roots.
