Table 1 Clipping sampling. Biomass yield, capture and efficiency in the use of water and radiation and related traits. Results of the ANOVA. Cultivar means sharing the same letter within each season do not differ significantly from one another (LSD Test at P ≤ 0.05)

From: Ancient wheat species are suitable to grain-only and grain plus herbage utilisations in marginal Mediterranean environments
