Table 5 Validation of the two quantitative trait loci (QTL) in structured and unstructured recombinant inbred line (RIL) populations with the corresponding senescence effect

From: Identification and validation of QTL and their associated genes for pre-emergent metribuzin tolerance in hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
