  1. 1Research station in Costa Rica. Seeds of F5 generation of population of 2 and 3 were produced in winter 2006-2007, while F2 seeds of population 4 were produced in winter 2008-2009. 2 Plants were grown in Delta Research Center, seeds of F7 generation of the populations 2 and 3 were produced in summer 2008 and F3 generation of population 4 was produced in summer 2009. 3 All of the plants were grown summer 2009 at the Bradford Research & Extension Center, Columbia MO
