  1. Heading and maturity are calculated as the number of days from drilling, whereas green canopy duration is determined by the difference between heading and maturity dates. 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 in absolute values.
