*  NOTE:  Yields from the 1997 test at this site were extremely low due to prolonged drought.  The editors have elected not to include these yields when calculating long-term averages due to their potential to excessively influence long-term variety averages.
 
1. Yields calculated at 13% moisture.
2. Lodging rating: Rated 1 (all plants erect) to 5 (over 80% of plants down).
3. Seed quality rating: Rated 1 (very good) to 5 (very poor).
4. CV = 14.1% and df for EMS = 44.
5. The F-test indicated no statistical differences at the alpha = 0.10 probability level; therefore an LSD value was
    not calculated.
Bolding within each test denotes entries with yields equal to the highest yielding entry based on Fisher's
protected LSD (P = 0.10).
 
Planting dates: 6/18/96, 6/25/97, and 6/18/98.
