TABLE 4

Number of QTL detected in estimation sets averaged over data sets (ES) and the range (Embedded Image ) of the number of QTL detected in estimation sets for each of 12 possible combinations of sample size (N) and number of test environments (E) of experimental data using fivefold standard cross-validation and two significance levels for grain yield, grain moisture, and plant height

LOD 2.5 and F-to-enter = 3.5LOD 3.21 and F-to-enter = 12.4
