Relative contribution of shoot and ear photosynthesis to grain filling in wheat under good agronomical conditions assessed by differential organ Delta13C

Published in Journal of Experimental Botany, 2014  Sanchez-Bragado, R.; Molero, G.; Reynolds, M.P.; Araus, J.L.  During grain filling in C3 cereals, the shoot (particularly the flag leaf) and the ear are believed to play major roles as sources of assimilates. However, both the cost and the intrusive...
