Morphological measurements included vegetative shoot height (distance to the ligule of the uppermost leaf), leaf blade length and maximum width and leaf blade angle from vertical on the most recent, fully expanded leaf of each tiller.
Plants from each site were also different with those at Honeymoon being taller and having thicker leaf blades than those at Gardinier (Bowdish 1996).
The nematine sawflies can be divided into eight informal groups based on the galling site on the host plant and gall morphology: (1) species with free-living larvae; (2) leaf folders or rollers; (3) leaf blade gallers; (4) apical leaf gallers; (5) basal leaf gallers; (6) midrib and petiole gallers; (7) stem gallers; and (8) bud gallers.
The leaf blades play an important role in the ecology of pastoral systems, since they produce assimilates, which are necessary for the growth and maintenance of the plant.
Primary data were recorded on days to heading (DTH), days to maturity (DTM), plant height (PH), stem length (SL), peduncle length (PL), peduncle extrusion (PE), spike length (SpL), flag leaf auricle height (FLAH), flag leaf node height (FLNH), flag leaf sheath length (FLSL), flag leaf blade length (FLBL), flag leaf blade width (FLBW), productive tillers (PT), non-productive tillers (NPT), percent lodging (L), spike weight (SpW), grain yield per spike (GYPSp), grains per spike (GPSp), tiller vegetative mass (TVM), 1000 kernel weight (TKW), grain yield (GY) and biological yield (BY).
The parameters evaluated were leaf blade width and epidermis width of the adaxial and abaxial phase.
