  1. Performance of NILs with either the recurrent parent (Spark) or the introgressed region (Rialto) across 5 environments. Significant differences are represented by * (P <0.05), ** (P <0.01) and *** (P <0.001); non-significant effects are also indicated (NS). Delta refers to the difference between the Rialto and Spark NIL phenotypes as a percentage of the Spark NIL.
