Wheat photosynthesis using RIDES_light_potential_ECS


Screen for photosynthetic diversity in wheat.

  1. Remove pot if needed and place it on spare bench.
  2. Carefully, untie plant without damaging any leaves.
  3. Identify the youngest, fully expanded leaf
  4. Run the PhotosynQ with the light sensor “upright”. Place sensor in the middle section of the leaf, on the top side of the leaf.
  5. Try not to change the leaf angle. If leaf is “floppy”, target the leaf section facing perpendicular to the sun.



This protocol measures a series of factors that allow us to estimate: stomatal conductance (via changes in humidity and leaf temperature);
ATP synthase conductivity, pmf parameters through DIRK(ECS) The rate of turnover of the cytochrome b6f complex through DIRKP(700) Chlorophyll fluorescence parameters Phi2, NPQ(t), PhiNPQ, PhiNO, qL(t) ...
