Study: dynamic photosynthesis model simulates crop increase

When the sun rises every morning, plants must prepare to receive nutrients from the sunlight, which takes time. Reducing the time taken to prepare plants can be a key to increasing the yield of many varieties. Researchers have shown that by using this technique, they can improve the response time of C4 plants (plants that use C4 carbon fixation for photosynthesis), such as corn, thereby increasing productivity by 10–20 percent.
