Measurements of plant height were made on at least 15 plants. Each value represents the mean ± sd.

    • F2-a The distances between the first 15 pedicels on the main bolt were measured from a single plant.

    • F2-b The second pair of leaves was measured and averaged for 15 plants.

    • F2-c The first 15 siliques on a single plant were measured, and the seeds were removed and counted.
