- ... Plant height determines plant biomass yield, harvest index and economic yield. We analyzed quantitative trait loci (QTL) and gene action controlling plant height. We generated the maternal and paternal testcrossing (TC/M and TC/P) populations based on a recombinant inbred line population. Data for plant height at t1, t2, t3, t4 or t5 stages were collected over 2 years from 3 TC/M field trials and ...
