Increased whole plant seed yields of bypass transgenics. a Seed yield of representative plants from DEF2, DEF2+TG1 and WT lines was measured. Bypass transgenics have substantially higher seed yield than WT. b In short-day conditions, DEF2 plants have 50–57 % higher seed yield and DEF2+TG1 plants have 57–72 % higher seed yield than WT (n = 9, Student’s t test p < 0.05). c The weight per seed of bypass transgenics is comparable to the weight per seed of WT plants (n = 6 sets, 50 seeds per set)
