  1. The table provides the p values for each fixed effect of the main factors (genotype, water treatment, year), their interactions, and for the random effects of the block and of the stem. p values lower than 0.05, 0.01 and 0.001 are indicated with *, ** and ***, respectively. p values lower than 0.01 are in italic type
