 Name two green house crops. What is the type of these plants and why are they used in the green houses?

Tomatoes and bell pepper are the two green house crops. They are C3 plants. They are used in the green houses as they respond to higher CO2 concentrations by showing increased rates of photosynthesis which in turn leads to higher yield. These are allowed to grow in carbon dioxide enriched atmosphere that leads to higher yields.

Why Rubisco is not affected by O2 in C4 plants ?

O2 is formed in mesophyll cells while Rubisco is present in bundle sheath cells. Therefore Rubisco does not come in contact with O2 and is thus not affected by it.
