These are fresh market hand-picked peas grown with Advancing Eco Agriculture nutrition and biology management systems, after three months of treating compacted mostly dead soils.
We know that plants routinely are only photosynthesizing at 15%-20% of their inherent capacity. Increasing this performance level to 60+% is a realistic objective for field-scale agriculture. The steps to achieving these results include expanding leaf width, increasing leaf thickness, increasing chlorophyll concentrations, ensuring generous levels of manganese for water hydrolysis, and supplying adequate CO2, in addition to the obvious needs for water and sunlight.
How much more photosynthates would you expect these leaves to produce above the average in a 24-hour photoperiod?
