NOTE:  Grain loss due to birds caused variation in performance among plots within the tests.             Therefore, caution should be used in making decisions concerning hybrid selection             based on these results.
1. Yields calculated at 15.5% moisture.
2. Grain quality rating: 1 = excellent to 5 = poor.
3. Grain moisture at harvest.
4. CV = 18.4%, and df for EMS = 45.
5. The F-test indicated no statistical differences at the alpha = .10 probability level; therefore an LSD     value was not calculated.
Bolding indicates entries yielding equal to highest yielding entry within a column based on Fisher's protected LSD (P = 0.10).
Planted: April 27, 1998.
Harvested: September 10, 1998.
Population: 22,500 plants/acre in 30" rows.
Soil Type: Waynesboro loam.
Soil Test: P = High, K = Medium, and pH = 6.3.
Fertilization: 50 lb N, 47 lb P2O5, and 70 lb K2O/acre as preplant; 100 lb N/acre as sidedress.
Previous Crop: Soybean.
Management: Moldboard plowed and rototilled; Aatrex and Dual used for weed control.
