Improvement of pea biomass and seed productivity by simultaneous increase of phloem and embryo loading with amino acids.

Abstract

The development of sink organs such as fruits and seeds strongly depends on the amount of nitrogen that is moved within the phloem from photosynthetic-active source leaves to the reproductive sinks. In many plant species nitrogen is transported as amino acids. In pea (Pisum sativum L.), source to sink partitioning of amino acids requires at least two active… (More)
