In order to achieve high yields, the use of radiation by agricultural crops must be improved in order to maximize and extend the duration of foliar interception of solar radiation. Appropriately, studies aimed at the understanding and behavior of radiation in plants are extremely relevant. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to approach information about the concepts, radiation availability temporal, geographical, photosynthesis efficiency as a function of leaf arrangement and radiation interception efficiency × leaf area index (LAI). Studies aimed at a significant comprehension of radiation in crops demonstrate that the plant growth and development depend on the intensity and duration of solar radiation. More surveys are required on the subject for a better development of the culture, aiming to guarantee that the plants have better conditions to express their potential.
