Bohn, K., Effects of Land Management on Photosynthetic Parameters | ND EPSCoR 2019 Annual Conference, Dickinson State University (DSU), Poster, 2019-03-27, This research analyzes the effects of land management on photosynthetic parameters at both the canopy and leaf levels utilizing a PhotosynQ and GreenSeeker device to measure chlorophyll content, PhiNPQ, Phi2, and PhiNO, which indicate light and nutrient usage. The results demonstrate that cropland absorbed and utilized light more efficiently by converting CO2 into carbohydrates rather than into heat or damaging energy compared to idle CRP land; thereby, potentially reducing the amount of atmospheric CO2.
