Sugarcane is a champion at photosynthesis under the right conditions and is a prime example of a C4 plant, one which uses C4 photosynthesis. Sugarcane has been recorded at 7% .
Photosynthesis - C4 Pathway - Part 1 - Duration: 10:42
These pathways of carbon fixation, know as the C4 and the CAM pathways, take place in the cytoplasm of the cell.
