Source-to-sink movement of plant assimilates usually involves the transfer of substrate materials from green, photosynthesizing assimilating tissues to growing regions or storage organs. Mason and Maskell (1928), who measured carbohydrate fractions in fruits, stems, and leaves of cotton at various times during the day, did much to develop the source-to-sink concept for assimilate movement.
