  1. Response of B. rapa seed set (number of seeds per silique) and seed weight (mg) to 5-AzaC treatment. Plants were grown from seeds treated with different concentrations of 5-AzaC (0.01mM, 0.1mM, 0.5mM, 1.0mM and 1.5mM) and a control. Seeds were harvested from nominated positions (sixth, seventh and eighth positions, from the apex of the primary inflorescence) of randomly selected E1 plants. A total of 20 plants in each concentration, consisting of four replications (five plants per replicate) were used for this analysis. The data were analysed by ANOVA and the table shows the mean, standard error of the mean, variance of observations, the standard error of the difference (SED) between means and the degrees of freedom (df).
