Carbon dioxide is the raw material for photosynthesis. The carbon dioxide enters the leaf through stomata. When the stomata are closed, the availability of carbon dioxide for photosynthesis decreases which will reduce the rate of photosynthesis. The carbon dioxide is a limiting factor in photosynthesis. Relatively higher concentration of carbon dioxide also causes decrease in the rate of photosynthesis.
