  1. *The number of studies we present may differ with those presented by a review as some combined studies from different years at the same location into single entries. These were spilt for the purposes of this review. Other quantitative reviews (QRs) split single studies into multiple entries when more than one crop was investigated. Here we consider them as a single study.
  2. **46 studies were used in this review but one PhD thesis (O’Rourke, 2010) was omitted due to lack of access.
