xL: location; C: cultivar. Means over two locations and two replications. All contents are based on dry weight basis.
yRatio between content of C18 : 2 and C18 : 3 fatty acids (linoleic : linolenic fatty acids).
*Means followed by similar letters are not different according to Duncan’s multiple range test at 5% level of significance.
