A new nature inspired evolutionary technique called Root Shoot Coordination Optimization (RSCO) has been proposed here. This optimization method has been developed on the basis of conduction procedure of plant. Water and solute i.e. food circulation phenomena maximizes on the fruitful coordination between root and leaves/shoot. This circulation procedure in plant incorporates two vital processes which are ascent of sap and translocation of food. Ascent of sap occurs due to the combined effect of adhesion and cohesion tension of water molecules and transpiration pull for the evaporation of water through stomata of shoot. Translocation of food takes place due to the pressure difference of solute in the shoot and root. This thought has been mathematically modeled as a new soft computing tool. This method has been tested for some benchmark problems. This method showed its effectiveness with encouraging results.
