Enhanced biomass formation in transgenic poplar plants grown in an LMO field. Growth performance was analyzed using poplar plants grown in an LMO field for 3 months (from spring to summer). a The LMO facility used in this study (see Methods). Outside view of the facility isolated by a fence (upper panel) and shading treatment for young seedlings grown in the spring in the LMO field (lower panel). b A representative photograph showing the growth of WT and transgenic poplars in the LMO field in summer. c Measurement of stem height (upper panel) and diameter (lower panel) of transgenic hybrid poplars (i.e., 35S::PdGA20ox1, DX15::PdGA20ox1, and DX15::PdGA20ox1-2A-PtrMYB3) and comparison to these growth parameters in WT plants. Error bars indicate S.D. (n = 4). The same letters indicate non-significant differences among each line (one-way ANOVA with Tukey’s test, P < 0.05)
