Photocontrol of stem elongation in plant neighbourhoods: effects of photon fluence rate under natural conditions of radiation


We investigated the effects of photon fluence rate on internode elongation in fully de-etiolated plants growing under sunlight. Our goal was to find out whether perception by the stetns of fluence rate changes related to canopy density tnay be involved in the modulation of internode growth in canopies formed by plants of sitnilar stature (e.g. crop stands… (More)
