3to4: Converting C3 to C4 photosynthesis for sustainable agriculture
ID: 289582
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
Most plants use the C3 pathway of photosynthesis that is compromised by gross inefficiencies in CO2 fixation. However, some plants use a super-charged photosynthetic mechanism called C4 photosynthesis. The C4 pathway is used by the most productive vegetation and crops on Eart...
