why C4 plant is more productive than C3 plant??

Dear Student,

The C4 plants are considered to be more productive than the C3 plants because they lack the phenomenon of photorespiration. They also have the mechanism to increase the CO2 concentration at enzyme site. C4 acids are broken in the bundle sheath cells to release CO2, thus increasing the intracellular concentration of CO2.

Hope this answers your question,
