Research in the areas exploring the physiological characteristics of the plants which are able to maintain a favorable balance of catabolic and synthetic reactions during the stress is vitally important in the search to find varieties of economically important plants that are adaptable to stress conditions.
This series of experiments attempts to establish what effects on CO2 evolution in darkness are related to increasingly severe moisture stress. Also the effect of water stress on the activity of the primary carboxylating enzyme of sorghum is determined as an indication of the potential CO2 fixation levels of water stressed sorghum.
