Photosynthesis

Back to Agrimet Division's Research Activities

To develop mathematical simulation models of photosynthesis, plant growth and yield etc. the following projects are proposed to be taken up:

1. Measurements and modeling of photosynthesis for major field crops.

2. Photosynthesis in relation to dry matter partitioning.

3. Photosynthesis on genetically improved and traditional varieties.

4. Photosynthesis under water stress condition in the drying cycle.

5. Finding the threshold values for leaf water potential and soil water content in the soil profile for optimization of photosynthesis.
