Why is it significant that Photosynthesis does not occur in green light?

Hi! Photosynthesis does not occur in green light because hloroplasts(cause they contain hlorophil) absorbs in red and in blue part of spectre. They don't get energy needed for photosynthesis when they're light up with green light cause hloroplasts reflect green light and don't make use of it's energy.That's why they are green.
Sorry on my bad English.

The kind of light absorbed depends on the pigments: photosynthesis CAN OCCUR in green light, but not in plants: in red algae
