Performance of heterotic NILs for grain yield and kernels per plant. Performance, as percentage of the overall parental mean across six field trials (PM, red line), of the three genotypes B73/B73 (BB, blue), H99/H99 (HH, pink) and B73/H99 (BH, green) for grain yield (panel A) and for kernels per plant (panel B) of QTL 3.05, 4.10 and 10.03 in all five NIL sets. Vertical bars represent the standard error as percentage of PM.
