Physiological and genetical basis for increasing yield in crop plants



Physiological and genetical basis for increasing yield in crop plants



Sel' skokhozyaistvennaya Biologiya 14(6): 762-766



Achievements in breeding for increased photosynthetic activity are outlined. Evidence is presented for the joint nuclear and cytoplasmic control of photosynthesis. The role of photorespiration in determining yield is emphasized and differences in this character between groups of crops are indicated. Crops without apparent photorespiration, such as maize, sorghum and sugar cane, produce yields twice as great as those with photorespiration, such as wheat, sugar beet, soya bean and cotton.
