This study assessed the response of photosynthesis, chlorophyll content (CC), stomatal conductance (SC) and intercepted radiation (IR) of chickpea to biochar (0, 5 10 and 20 t ha-1) and phosphorus (P) fertilizer (0 and 90 kg ha-1) rates in Thohoyandou, South Africa in 2013/2014 summer and winter seasons. Photosynthesis, CC, SC and IR were determined at vegetative and reproductive stages. Biochar increased SC and CC by 22 - 49% and 57 – 126%, respectively. P increased CC by up to 9% in the… CONTINUE READING
