Improved Potato Plant Growth and Yield Under Elevated CO2
Ahmadi Lahijani, M.J., Kafi, M., Nezami, A., Nabati, J. and Erwin, J.E. 2019. Effect of CO2 enrichment on gas exchanges, biochemical traits, and minituber yield in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) cultivars. Journal of Agricultural Science and Technology 21: 883-894. Nov 8, 2018

[SEPP Comment: International statistics show potato is the fourth most important crop for humans.]

The Response of Faba Bean to Elevated CO2 and Soil Water Content
Parvin, S., Uddin, S., Tausz-Posch, S., Fitzgerald, G., Armstrong, R. and Tausz, M. 2019. Elevated CO2 improves yield and N2 fixation but not grain N concentration of faba bean (Vicia faba L.) subjected to terminal drought. Environmental and Experimental Botany 165: 161-173. Nov 7, 2019

The Combined Impact of Elevated CO2 and Cold Temperature Stress on Spring Wheat
Zhu, X., Liu, S., Sun, L., Song, F., Liu, F. and Li, X. 2018. Cold tolerance of photosynthetic electron transport system is enhanced in wheat plants grown under elevated CO2. Frontiers in Plant Science 9: 933, doi: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00933. Nov 4, 2019

“Taken together, the above findings demonstrate that rising CO2 levels will help reduce the negative impacts of cold temperature stress on winter or spring wheat. And those benefits will translate to greater growth and yields.”
