Genetic variation for photosynthetic capacity and efficiency in spring wheat

Silva-Pérez, Viridiana; De Faveri, Joanne; Molero, Gemma; Deery, David; Condon, Anthony; Reynolds, Matthew P.; Evans, John; Furbank, Robert


One way to increase yield potential in wheat is screening for natural variation in photosynthesis. This study uses measured and modelled physiological parameters to explore genotypic diversity in photosynthetic capacity (Pc, Rubisco carboxylation capacity per unit leaf area at 25 °C) and efficiency (Peff, Pc per unit of leaf nitrogen) in wheat in relation to fertilizer, plant stage, and environment. Four experiments (Aus1, Aus2, Aus3, and Mex1) were carried out with diverse wheat collections...[Show more]
