Competing Interests

This study was partly funded by Nuseed Pty Ltd and the Australian Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC). Some of the data provided in this study may have been included in patent applications. CSIRO is in a commercial arrangement with GRDC and Nuseed to develop DHA land plants, although there is no product name as yet. There are no further patents, products in development or marketed products to declare. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials, as detailed online in the guide for authors.
