Does diffuse light benefit photosynthesis in canopies?

Testing how scattered diffuse sunlight affects the growth and photosynthesis of crops, at the National Plant Phenotyping System.  Santa Neimane explains below how plants might grow under future cloudy climates.

We recently published an opinion piece in Agricultural & Forest Meteorology assessing research into the effects of diffuse radiation on photosynthesis at the canopy levels in the context of future climate changes and solar radiation manipulation.
