The present work aims at testing the hypothesis that carbon use efficiency (CUE) of sunflower, grain sorghum, wheat and chickpea crops, having different photosynthetic pathways (C 3, C4) and yield composition (carbohydrates, proteins, lipids), will hold constant over the natural thermal regime occurring during the entire crop cycle in the open field. All crops were well watered. Sunflower and sorghum had two treatments of nitrogen application, while wheat had only one suitable level of nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
