  • The number of developed seeds and failed ovules was determined in 19 siliques from four plants of C24, 28 siliques from four plants of line 1 (ada), 22 siliques from four plants of line 5 (tya), and 17 siliques from three line 9 (lip) mutants. Seed set was scored following careful removal of the ovary wall.
