Dew Root

Also known as suction root, aerial root, day root, willow and Tausauger roots, which the vine forms laterally just below the surface of the earth. They serve to absorb surface precipitation(dew, frost). They are destroyed during ploughing, but grow back again quickly. Below them are the lateral roots and at the very bottom the tarsal roots.
