Abstract The concept of plant nitrogen productivity was introduced at the end of the 1970s to interpret the dependency of plant growth on internal nitrogen. It is defined as the increase in plant dry matter per unit time and per unit plant nitrogen content. Recently, plant nitrogen productivity has been expressed as the product of two terms: the leaf nitrogen ratio, which is the proportion of the plant's nitrogen present in the leaves, and the leaf nitrogen productivity, which is defined as the… CONTINUE READING
