A further important aspect of the rhizosphere is that up to 20% of the net photosynthate produced by many plants can be passed through the root system into the rhizosphere.
Hence, the positive effect of mineral N supplied for wheat on a number of sink organs results not only from an increase in mineral N supply, but also from an increase in the photosynthate supply to the sink sites [21].
The fungi benefit by receiving 30-60 % of the net photosynthate produced by the host (Simard et al.
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.
2006), the preflowering period is necessary for the adequate development of the leaves to supply photosynthate to the grains during the grain-filling stage.
It is in some aspects reminiscent of the observed increase of photosynthate by Pi fertilization in several crop species [34].

Branches growing at lower densities capture more light than those growing at higher densities, allowing them not only to reach a greater size but also to provide more carbohydrates for stem growth, which is a relatively low priority sink of photosynthate allocation (Lanner 1985, Rouvinen and Kuuluvainen 1997, Gartner et al.
decreasing current photosynthate production to roots via foliar scorching) and an increase in the carbon sink strength (i.
1982) and may produce over 90% of the photosynthate (Towle and Pearse 1973).
1993, Bergstrom and Danell 1995), presumably because of decreased shoot growth due to reductions in photosynthate.
