The association between endosperm cell number and grain dry weight, and the dependence of endosperm cell division on the availability of organic nutrients, have been investigated in wheat. Two different procedures were used to vary the supply of nutrients to the grains during the phase of cell division. Detached ears were cultured in solutions of sucrose (0-60 g 1-1) and glutamine (0.125-0.75 g N 1-1), or intact plants were exposed to high (560 µmol m-2 s-1) or low (55 µmol m-2 s-1) photon… CONTINUE READING
