Table 2 Mean values for the number of seminal roots, seedling root length (cm) and root angle (°) of the six highest (top) and six lowest (bottom) ranked wheat-alien chromosome lines along with the CS check (Experiment 1)

From: Alien chromosome segment from Aegilops speltoides and Dasypyrum villosum increases drought tolerance in wheat via profuse and deep root system
