5.2 Crop Yield

Understand the effects on crop yield of increased carbon dioxide and increased temperature in glasshouses

Carbon Dioxide 
1.  Rate of P/S (carbon dioxide + water ---> glucose + oxygen) glucose --> starch. 

 a )Increasing CO2 --> (substrate) increases the rate of reaction of P/S = a higher yield. 
b) Limit: optimum temp

2. a) Increase the temperature ---> increase the rate of reaction of P/S = yield increases.

b) Limit:
optimum temp
