The continued production of new adventitious roots from the crown and the ability of these roots to establish themselves as perennial by producing secondary tissues are basic to healthy strawberry-plant growth. This main root structure in turn produces successive crops of lateral absorptive rootlets, which make up the transient portion of the root system. The anatomical studies of strawberry roots described in this paper indicate that the extent to which these processes take place unimpeded largely determines the health and vigor of the plant.
