Analysis of seed production parameters from T1 plants derived from KRP1OE events

For each parameter, the average values for the transgenic siblings (TR), the average for the controls, the percentage of difference between the average for the transgenic and the average for the control plants (%Δ), and the P value for %Δ are listed. The different values are calculated for each of the four transgenic lines individually (008A, 013A, 004A, and 011A) and for the aggregate of the four different transgenic lines (All).
