Vineyard microclimate, created between the plants by restricted access of solar radiation and raised air temperature, increased leaf plastid pigment synthesis and retarded breakdown at the end of the growth period. During the adaptation of plants to shading, leaves with xerophytic characteristics were produced which depended on a lower radiation energy absorption coefficient in the yellow-green region of the spectrum. No direct correlation was found between chlorophyll content and photosynthetic intensity in restricted light.
