Table 2: The average duration of each period of production cycle (days, %) average losses during each period (%), and the number of observed production cycles (n). Data are presented as mean ± STD. Different alphabetic superscripts in the same column indicate significant differences at α = 0.05 (ANOVA, Tukey’s post hoc test).
