Development of photosystem I and onset of generative phase in buckwheat

The length of the generative phase and the development of photosystem I in buckwheat cotyledones were found to be correlated. Increasing days of light exposure help both of these processes. It is presumed that electron transfer during energy absorption probably serves as a prelude to further molecular events leading to the onset of the generative phase.
