- ... BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([CO₂]) stimulates the leaf-level (intrinsic) water use efficiency (iWUE), which may mitigate the adverse effects of drought by lowering water use in plants. This study investigated the interactive effect of [CO₂] and soil type on growth, yield and water use of canola (Brassica napus L.) in a dryland environment. METHODS: Two ...
