The investigations show the largest number of vascular bundles in the first and second internodes above the root system. In general the number of vascular bundles varies with cross-sectional area of internodes. In small stalks the number of bundles per unit area is slightly greater than in large stalks, and in internode above the ear slightly greater than in internodes below the ear.
