"Canopy height";R;"Maximum height from the ground to the top of the basal leaves (cm)";"Measured in the field (usually weekly)"
"Seed release height";R;"Maximum height from the ground to the top of the inflorescence (cm)";"Measured in the field (usually weekly)"
"Total length of inflorescence";R;"Length of inflorescence (cm) from the lowermost flower bud, flower or flower scar to the top (A–C in Fig. 2)";"Determined via photos"
"Length of the inflorescence with open flowers";A;"Length from the lowermost flower/flower scar to the uppermost open flower (A–B in Fig. 2);";"Determined via photographs; open flowers were defined as flowers with unfolded standard, visible keel, and elongated pedicel"
RLF;A;"Relative length of the inflorescence with open flowers at each measuring event (tx)";
doy;A/E/R;"Day of the year";"Day number (1st of January = day 1)"
gdd;A/E/R;"Number of growing degree days using a base temperature of 5 °C";"GDD=(Tmax – Tmin)/2 – TBase, if TMean > TBase"
gdh;E;"Cumulated day length: growing degree day length (hours), called growing day hours";"GDH=GDD*Day length of each day included in calculation of GDD"
Flow.half;R;"Day of the year (doy.flow.half) or number of growing degree days (gdd.flow.half) when half of the actual length of the inflorescence carried open flowers";"Estimated per site via RLF using logistic regressions"
First.flow;R;"Day of the year (doy.first.flow) or number of growing degree days (gdd.first.flow) when the first flower was formed";"Determined via photographs"
First.ripe;R;"Day of the year (doy.first.ripe) or number of growing degree days (gdd.first.ripe) when the first black pod was formed";"Determined via photographs"
