Why do we water plants?

All living organisms require water to grow. Around 90% of the plant body is made up of water, thus the plant requires more water compared to animals for their growth.

Water is essential for the germination of seeds, for the growth of plants roots and for providing nutrition to the plants. It is also important for the multiplication fo soil organisms.

Water is helpful in the conversion of starch to sugar. It also helps in the transpiration process through which nutrients are absorbed from the soil.

Water pressure created inside the plant generates turgor pressure that is the pressure generated when plants absorb water from the ground and make it available to the leaves and stems.
