- ... In the current study, pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L.), a promising legume food crop was assessed for its photosynthetic physiology, antioxidative system as well as C and N metabolism under elevated CO₂ and combined drought stress (DS). Pigeonpea was grown in open top chambers under elevated CO₂ (600 µmol mol⁻¹) and ambient CO₂ (390 ± 20 µmol mol⁻¹) concentrations, later subjected to DS by complete wa ...
