  1. Seeds and panicles of Jpn1, Jpn 2, and P27 were collected in the field. Seeds of Jpn1 and Jpn2 were grown under glass house (GH) condition and harvested to measure traits. Repetitive counts (n) were average and the mean and standard deviation were presented as mean and SD.
  2. #: t-test was used to test differences against Jpn1. Significant levels were indicated as * (P = 0.05) and ** (P = 0.01).
