Abstract:

Mulberry being a C3 crop responsive to carbon, climate change in the form of elevated CO2 coupled with increased temperature would be helpful for crop but it gets altered in presence of herbivore. The eCO2 and temperature favoured growth and development of mulberry only in terms of quantity which was evidenced by accelerated growth of more plant height, leaves, leaf area index, leaf yield and plant biomass. Biochemical analysis of mulberry showed a lot of changes in it, wherein, the chlorophyll, carbon and carbon based compounds viz., tannins, phenols, total sugars, carbohydrates significantly increased in eCO2 as compared to aCO2 treatments. On the contrary, nitrogen (N) and N- based compounds viz., proteins decreased in eCO2 compounds which in turn altered C: N ratio.


Keywords: C3, Elevated carbon dioxide, Ambient carbon dioxide, C: N - carbon to nitrogen ratio.
