Effects of Nitrogen Nutrition Level on Photosynthesis of Wheat Under Rapid Water Stress

Xue Qing-Wu and Chen Pei-yuan   

Abstract: Effects of nitrogen (N) nutrition level on photosynthesis of wheat were studied using method of quick drying of detached leaves, under rapid water stress. The results showed that in the case, leaf water potential (Ψw), net photosynthetic rate (Pn) and stomatal conductance (Gs) of high N (HN) leaves decreased more quickly than that of low N (LN) leaves. Therefore, the difference of Pn between HN and LN leaves became less and less with increasing water stress. Under severe water stress, the Pn of HN leaves were lower than that of LN leaves. The intercellular concentration of CO2 (Ci) of HN leaves were lower than that of LN leaves, and the value of stomatal limitation of photosynthesis (Ls) of HN leaves were higher during rapid water stress. However, the mesophllous conductance of CO2 (Gm) and photosynthetic activity of mesophyll of HN leaves were still higher than that of LN leaves.
