The development of a procedure to calculate the effect of certain environmental factors on the rate of photo-synthesis imposed mainly geometrical problems, which were solved in such a way that the actual calculation could be carried out by means of a computer. The calculation procedures have been used to study the. relative importance of the variables under various conditions. The results for a standard set of conditions, have been summarized in order to make it possible to estimate the daily photosynthesis at any time and place for a wide range of photosynthesis functions without a computer.
