Table 1 Correlation coefficients for the associations among Na+ concentration, overall phenotypic score (SES), survival, K+ concentration, Na+-K+ ratio, shoot and root biomass, and shoot length in F2:3 population of a cross between Capsule (salt tolerant) and BR29 (salt sensitive) subjected to salt stress at seedling stage

From: Assessing trait contribution and mapping novel QTL for salinity tolerance using the Bangladeshi rice landrace Capsule
