  1. Data measured in 2016 (n = 5). Agross of a flag leaf, estimated light saturated gross photosynthetic rate of a whole flag leaf by assuming a constant light saturated photosynthetic rate of 25 μmol m−2 s−1 (the leaf area data was taken from Table 2); Agross of a panicle, light saturated gross photosynthetic rate of a whole panicle (data was taken from Table 1); P/FL Agross, the ratio between light saturated gross photosynthetic rate of a panicle and that of a flag leaf
