Photosynthesis provides the material basis of crop yield formation. At present, crop biomass yield must be enhanced if crop yield is expected to be more improved under the conditions of more difficultly increasing crop leaf area index and economic coefficient, the key approach is improving solar radiation utilization efficiency. High photosynthetic efficiency of crop is a concept with widely connotation and extension; it involves in the whole process of crop life activities and relates to many subjects with different views. At the basis of current research progress, combined with author’s practice in crop physiology, breeding and cultivation, we outlined high photosynthetic efficiency of crop from the major process and critical control points of photosynthesis, solar radiation utilization efficiency, the physiological basis, morphological characteristics, identification and screening of crop with high photosynthetic efficiency to provide some beneficial thoughts and references for the future research.

Key words: Crop, Photosynthesis, High photosynthetic efficiency, Solar radiation(light energy)utilization efficiency
