Flag leaves could help top off photosynthetic performance in rice

The flag leaf is the last to emerge, indicating the transition from crop growth to grain production. Photosynthesis in this leaf provides the majority of the carbohydrates needed for grain filling–so it is the most important leaf for yield potential. A team from the University of Illinois and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) found […]
