Table 2 Plant fecundity and fruit yield: number of inflorescences per plant/strawberry – cane/raspberry, number of fruits per inflorescence and total plant (strawberry) – cane (raspberry) fruit production from control and DefH9-iaaM transgenic lines of strawberry (F. vesca and F. x ananassa) cultivated in greenhouse and raspberry (R. idaeus) cultivated in open field.

From: The defH9-iaaM auxin-synthesizing gene increases plant fecundity and fruit production in strawberry and raspberry

  1. Values are means ± SE collected from 15 plants of F. vesca, 15 plants of F. x ananassa. For raspberry, four plants from each of the four plots were analysed, and five canes per plant were evaluated (see methods for details). For each trait, means followed by at least one common letter are not significantly different according to Duncan's Multiple Range Test (p < 0.01). SE = Standard Error.
