Structure and photosynthesis of wheat communities.
Data are given on daily net photosynthesis (determined gasometrically using a field-chamber technique), solar radiation, canopy structure and foliage area index for wheat cv. Olympic and Chile IB supplied with optimum water and nutrients between late June and early Nov. The data were compared with 3 community photosynthetic models; those models combining foliage structure, incident radiation and photosynthetic light response of individual leaves in the canopy gave estimates in reasonable agreement with observed values.
