  • For quantification of inflorescence characters, the sample size was normal 11, spi1 12, ba1 11, and spi1;ba1 10. For quantification of ear number, the sample size was normal 56, spi1 16, ba1 24, and spi1;ba1 7.

  • a Value is significantly different from normal, P < 0.05.

  • b Value is significantly different from either single mutant, P < 0.05.
