Compared to many other crops, maize has a significantly higher productivity. The special leaf anatomy and the special form of photosynthesis (referred to as "C4") that were developed during its development allow maize to grow significantly faster than comparable plants. As a result, maize needs more efficient transport strategies to distribute the photoassimilates generated during […]
