Green plants synthesize their own food. They prepare food from water and carbon dioxide in the presence of sunlight and a photosynthetic pigment called chlorophyll. Photosynthesis process occurs in the following way:
- Light reaction or light dependent reaction
- Dark reaction or light independent reactions
Below are the basic requirements for the process of photosynthesis:
- Carbon dioxide rich air
- Sunlight for solar energy
- Photosynthetic pigment chlorophyll
Chlorophyll pigments are found in the chloroplasts.
