Is ozone bad for plants?

    Yes, quite frankly it is terrible, “Ground-level ozone causes more damage to plants than all other air pollutants combined.” Studies in open-top field chambers have repeatedly verified that flecking, stippling, bronzing and reddening on plant leaves are classical responses to ambient levels of ozone. This along with the negative effects of yield loss due to ozone, it really is quite bad for plants. It is an oxidizer and while oxygen is good it is also the one of the most damaging, corrosive elements.

    Yes it is very bad for plants and negatively impacts the process of photosynthesis by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide they are able to process and release as oxygen.
