The effect of current photosynthesis on the origin of translocates in old tomato leaves

The effect of current photosynthesis on the origin of translocates in old tomato leaves

Annals of Botany 40(170): 1153-1162

The rate of C transport from an old tomato leaf (54 days), grown at 80 W/m2, was measured under light flux densities between 7 and 90 W/m2. Under low light the rate of C transport over a 6 h period was about 1 mg C dm2/h, well in excess of the concurrent photosynthetic rate. The loss from these leaves of 14C-leaf assimilate which was fixed before the experimental period amounted to 62% of the total initial uptake and was higher from leaves with higher concurrent photosynthetic rates.
