Tropical regions receive the highest level of global solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation especially UV-B (280-320 nm). The average daily dose of the UV-B radiation in Madurai, South India (10°N) is 10 kJ m-2. This is approximately 50% more than the average daily UV-B radiation in many European countries. A field study was conducted using selective filters to remove either the UV-B (< 320 nm) or UV-B/A (<400 nm) of the solar spectrum, and the effects were followed inCyamopsis tetragonoloba, Vigna… CONTINUE READING
