Chloroplasts are the site of photosynthesis, the process in which light energy is converted to chemical energy. Chlorophyll is not a very stable compound, bright sunlight decomposes it, so plants continuously make it. Greenhouse Grasses Through photosynthesis, plants use carbon dioxide to make oxygen and help regulate the amount of both gases in the atmosphere. Since plants grow faster and use more carbon dioxide when carbon dioxide levels are high, some people believe that plants can absorb much of the. Figure 2. Corn (Pioneer 35F40) planted May 15 with purple coloring symptoms. Photo by Thierno Diallo, UW Corn Agronomy project taken on June 10. Anthocyanins are formed by a reaction between sugars and certain proteins in cell sap. This reaction requires light and does not occur until the concentration of sugar in the sap is quite high.
Often purpling in corn is caused by plant stresses that reduce or inhibit uptake of phosphorous. These stresses include low soil P; restricted root growth through cool, wet soils, compaction layers, planter issues involving side-wall compaction; and herbicide injury and.
