Table 1 Pearson’s correlation coefficients between Fusarium ear rot severity (FER) and fumonisin B1 concentration (FB1) of F3 families, measured with two inoculation methods (F = side-needle and T = toothpick), in early (A) and late (B) sowings of 2011 and 2012. I. Correlation between traits within the same sowing time. II. Correlation between traits across different sowing times and different years

From: QTL mapping and candidate genes for resistance to Fusarium ear rot and fumonisin contamination in maize
