The differences were studied among pop corn, sweet corn and glutinous cornin photosyntheticcharacteristics of leaves in different positions of the plants during the late growing period in the field conditions. The results showed thatdifferences of photosynthetic characteristics of leaves were superior for glutinous corn than for the sweet corn and pop corn. Moreover all the indices of photosynthesis rate (Pn), content of chlorophyll (Chl), transpiration rate (Tr) and stomatal conductance (Gs) were glutinous corn>sweet corn>pop corn. The photosynthesis rate of mid-leaves was glutinous corn>sweet corn>pop corn, whereas the difference of photosynthesis among lower leaves in plant was not significant. The chlorophyll content (Chl) of top and middle leaves was pop corn>sweet corn>glutinouscorn. Correlation analysis showed that it was significant at 5% or 1% probability levels in the different growing periods between Pn and Chl, Tr, Gs. At the same time, the photosynthetic characters of leaves in the top and middle positions of plant excelled those in the low leaves for all the three corn types. The Pn, Chl, duration for high Pn and Tr of glutinouscorn were superior to pop corn and sweet corn; attenuation time for leaf photosynthetic capability of pop corn and sweet corn was earlier than that for glutinous corn.
