Physiological and genetic bases of increasing the yield of agricultural crops


, : Physiological and genetic bases of increasing the yield of agricultural crops. Sel'skokhozyaistvennaya Biologiya 14(6): 762-766

The improvement of the photosynthetic system activity by genetic selection is described. The conception of a bi-unitive nuclear-plastid genetic control of photosynthesis is presented. The importance of photorespiration and the differences of various plant groups in this respect are indicated. Photosynthetic efficiency may be increased by the induction of isoenzymes of the phosphoenolpyruvate system, stimulating the CO2 transport to the choroplasts.

The effects of blue and red light on photosynthesis rate and carbohydrate translocation in cucumber grown in a solar greenhouse were studied. Red light enhanced the photosynthesis rate in leaves, promoted the accumulation of carbohydrates in plant...
