I’m fascinated by the concept of leaf area duration. Young leaf (sink). Old leaf (source) Sucrose in ➡️ aging ➡️ Sucrose out. Maximizing Photosynthesis comes down to stomata number and function as to how efficient the plant is at harvesting CO2 and splitting water. Harvesting CO2: watch Ca K P B levels Splitting H2O: Ca Mn Chlorophyll: Mg Fe End result: Carbohydrates and proteins.
