  1. The LHRF_F3:4segregating population derived from the cross between the F2 and the F252 parental inbred lines differing in desiccation rate. FW: kernel fresh matter weight (mg/kernel); DW: kernel dry matter weight (mg/kernel); %DW = DW/FW× 100; Water: kernel water content (mg/kernel); ABAend: ABA in endosperm (pg/DW); ABAemb: ABA in embryo (pg/DW); Slope: regression line slope of (Water/FW × 100) as a function of thermal time; Rate = (Water/FW × 100)/(thermal time interval).
