Std. Err. of Entry Mean 4.4 2.8 1 0.01 0.1 0.4 .

1. Yields calculated at 15.5% moisture.
2. Grain quality rating: 1 = excellent to 5 = poor.
3. Grain moisture at harvest.
4. CV = 4.8%, and df for EMS = 15.
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 6, 1998.
Harvested: August 28, 1998.
Population: 27,000 plants/acre in 30" rows.
Soil Type: Appling coarse sandy loam.
Soil Test: P = Medium, K = High, and pH = 6.7.
Fertilization: 49 lb N, 98 lb P2O5, and 147 lb K2O/acre as preplant; 200 lb N/acre as sidedress.
Previous Crop: Soybean.
Management: Moldboard plowed and rototilled; Aatrex and Lasso used for weed control;
irrigated 12 inches.
