Screening genetic variation for photosynthetic capacity and efficiency in wheat
The world population is rising, placing increasing demands on food production. One way to contribute to food security is by improving yields of staple crops like wheat. Yield can be calculated from the product of plant biomass and harvest index (the ratio of grain yield to above ground biomass). Since harvest index of wheat has already reached its maximum biological limit in some environments, attention is now focused on increasing crop biomass. Efficient...[Show more]
