Gleadow et al. (2009)

Tuber biomass of first fully-expanded leaves of well watered and fertilized -- with nutrient solutions containing 1 mM nitrate(low N) -- three-month-old plants grown from cuttings in greenhouses exposed to different concentrations of atmospheric CO2 between 0600 and 1800 hours daily
-40%
