Why rate of photosynthesis is high in blue light when photosystems operate at 680 and 700nm


Yes it is true that that rate of photosynthesis is highest in blue light but because of presence of different types of chlorophyll, accessory pigments (carotenes, xanthophylls) the resultant absorption of PSI and PSII comes out to be 700nm and 680nm respectively.
