  • Effects of elevated CO2 and P on drought tolerance

    Phosphorus and elevated CO2 enhance drought tolerance

    Benefits to crop productivity arising from increasing CO2 fertilization may be offset by detrimental effects of global climate change, such as an increasing frequency of drought. Phosphorus ( P ) nutrition plays an important role in crop responses to water stress, but how elevated CO2 (eCO2) and P nutrition interact, especially in legumes, is unclear. […] More
