Table 1 Means and standard deviations of glucose and pentose measured at multiple positions within an internode

From: A high-throughput core sampling device for the evaluation of maize stalk composition

  Glucose yield Pentose yield
Position Bottom Middle Upper Bottom Middle Upper
Mean (%) 8.89 8.55 7.80 3.74 4.23 3.68
Standard deviation (%) 1.07 1.52 1.09 0.71 0.85 0.90
  1. Glucose and pentose yield were measured in three relative positions (bottom, middle and upper sections) of the second internode of three plants for each of four diverse maize inbred lines. The mean of the three plants was used to calculate the standard deviations.
