The harvest index describes the ratio between the weight of dry matter yields and crop biology, economy and highly dependent on the magnitude of the translocation photosynthate [30].
It could therefore be concluded that the application of the leachate has a deleterious effects on photosynthate production in Swiss chard species tested in this study due to accumulative toxic level of nutrients, high EC and osmotic limitations between the root and the soil solution.
However, the treatment bulbs that did survive (both S and D) were able during both studies, on average, to store up a greater mass of photosynthate than did either of the control groups.
The plants may exhibit greater length when exposed to favorable environmental conditions, which allow them a high photosynthetic performance, resulting in greater amount of photosynthate, or when exposed to light deficiency, elongating their strategy to achieve organs such as those induced by light in higher strata.
Further increase may lead to remobilization of stored sucrose for growth and maintenance of cellular process, due to the reduced amount of photosynthate production after maturity, indicating decrease in the sucrose content in the matured tissues during 13 MAP.
Different genotypes had different genetic potential to convert photosynthate into economically important parts of the plant.
The fungi benefit by receiving 30-60 % of the net photosynthate produced by the host (Simard et al.
05) increase in photosynthate reserve translocation was observed in all the tested genotypes under heat stress treatment as compared to their respective untreated control.
The research plan is based on work in the host laboratory showing a genetic link between the amounts of available photosynthate, nitrate transporter gene expression, nitrate uptake and growth.
Nematode galls on Miconia species are likely to decrease plant performance through photosynthate drainage and direct destruction of reproductive structures (Santos et ah, 2012; Viana et ah, 2013).
These symbioses have a nutritional basis, with evidence that the algal cells release substantial amounts of photosynthate to the host and may also recycle nitrogen (Muscatine, 1990; Wang and Douglas, 1998).
