Plants synthesize the sugar dextrose according to the following reaction by absorbing radiant energy from the sun (photosynthesis).

6CO2(g)+6H2O(g)C6H12O6(s)+6O2(g)6 \mathrm{CO}_2(g)+6 \mathrm{H}_2 \mathrm{O}(g) \rightleftharpoons \mathrm{C}_6 \mathrm{H}_{12} \mathrm{O}_6(s)+6 \mathrm{O}_2(g)

Will an increase in temperature tend to favor or discourage the production of C6H12O6(s)\mathrm{C}_6 \mathrm{H}_{12} \mathrm{O}_6(s)?

Le Chatelier's principle says that when an equilibrium is disturbed by the change of conditions in the system, the system will respond to restore the equilibrium again. The reaction of dextrose synthesis occurs by absorbing the energy, so if we increase the temperature we are adding additional energy and the reaction will go towards the products(C6_6H12_{12}O6_6).
