recently fully expanded leaf. PPFD was measured using the built-in quantum sensor on the leaf clip, and the rate of linear electron transport through photosystem II (electron transport rate; ETR), an estimate of the rate of the light reactions of

biosynthesis. These studies directly implicate electron transport in the desaturation of phytoene to form lycopene. Potassium has a known role in ATP synthesis, proton uptake, and electron flow in the thylakoid membranes of plastids, which are the site of

( Millaleo et al., 2010 ; Pittman, 2005). Past research has showed that plants absorb Mn by an active transport system in epidermal root cells, where it is transported by the xylem as Mn 2+ into the plant system ( Gherardi and Rengel, 2004 ; Marschner, 1995
