. Leaf gas exchange was measured on 2 Oct. 2009, 1 Oct. 2010, and 5 Nov. 2010. Because ‘Western’ kernel fill continues through October in New Mexico, the early November photosynthesis measurement date was included in 2010 to ensure that we captured the

photosynthesis is a central growth-controlling physiological process for plants to respond to salt stress. Leaf photosynthesis is composed of a physical CO 2 diffusion process for carbon supply and a sequence of physiological and biochemical processes for carbon
