in botany, a term referring to the development of lateral organs in the peripheral cell layers of the main axis of a particular plant organ.

An inspection of the sign of the causal impact indicates a positive sum of the lagged coefficients of DX, suggesting that a change in [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE IV OMITTED] [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE V OMITTED] lagged export growth helps forecast current output growth.(22) Since the hypothesis of Granger non-causality from lagged DY to DX cannot be rejected at the conventional level of significance, we therefore conclude that the export growth variable is strongly exogeneous.
