How much carbon do plants need to grow?



  1. 0 Votes

    The more light available to a plant, the more CO2 it needs for photosynthesis. Experiments have shown that during photosynthesis, it takes about 1 a photons to make enough electrons to create sufficient energy to split one CO2 molecule into carbon (c) and oxygen (02) atoms and form a sugar. There are trillions of photons striking the plant leaves, so a grower must provide enough CO2 or else the photons will just bounce off the leaves without doing much.

    A healthy tree stores about 13 pounds of carbon annually — or 2.6 tons per acre each year.
