  • a Values are averages of determinations of seed chips (n) from given generation.

  • b Value is averaged from determinations of pools of ground whole seeds from T4 plants.

  • c Values separated into averages for high and low (brackets) phosphate from chips of eight to 10 seeds from three T2 plants.
