1.  Yields calculated as 50 lb/bu at 8.5% moisture.
2.  Lodging rating:  1.0 = no lodging to 5.0 = all plants down.
3.  Shattering %:  Estimated yield lost to shattering.
4.  This entry has little or no vernalization requirement and is likely to flower too
    early and suffer cold injury during flower.
5.  C.V. = 9.0%, and df for EMS = 46.
6.  The F-test indicated no statistical differences at the alpha = .10 probability 
    level; therefore an LSD value was not calculated.
