Table 2 The effect on time to flowering for all genotypes grown under long days (LD) after transferring from short days (SD) to LD (1–6) or LD to SD (1′-6′) environments

  1. Transfer 0, CK represents plants not transferred for either LD-CK or SD-CK. Comparisons in time to flowering were conducted using Tukey’s test within genotypes and across transfer times. Highly significant differences within each genotype are indicated with different letters (HSD) (p = 0.01)
