  1. The presented values in the table are the mean of different levels of the studied traits. Statistical significance in each group was analysed by one-way ANOVA with multiple comparisons being made by Tukey’s test. Significant differences between level groups are indicated by letters (p < 0.05). PH, BrN, BN, SW and SI are abbreviated for plant height, branch number, boll number, seed set weight (g), seed index (g), respectively
