For most monocarpic species studied, blocking fruit development prevents or at least delays the death of the plants. However, it usually does not prevent the decline in photosynthetic rate, while it may or may not maintain the photosynthetic components (machinery) such as chlorophyll and ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase. Since sink demand influences photosynthetic rate and the fruit-less plants have limited sink capacity, their reduced photosynthesis may represent a metabolic adjustment… CONTINUE READING
