Site (cM), the most likely position of the putative QTL on the specific chromosome. E1 to E3 represent field trials at Anning farm station, Gansu, China (103°51′E, 36°04′N, 1600 m ASL) in 2012–2013, at Yongdeng farm station, Gansu, China (103°18′E, 36°42′N, 1950 m ASL) in 2013–2014, and at Yuzhong farm station, Gansu, China (104°07′E, 35°51′N, 1900 m ASL) in 2014–2015, respectively. a, the additive effect, of which a positive value indicates the Longjian 19 allele having an increasing effect on the trait value and a negative value represents the Q9086 allele having a decreasing effect on the trait value. R2(a) (%), the proportion of phenotypic variations explained by additive QTL. **P < 0.005, ***P < 0.001. Water environments (E1 to E3) marked by bold typeface indicated a QTL identified in the specific environment was also interacted significantly with drought stress
