1.  Yields calculated as 50 lb/bu at 8.5% moisture.
2.  Lodging rating: 1.0 = all plants erect to 5.0 = over 80% of plants down.
3.  C.V. = 15.2%, and df for EMS = 36.
4.  The F-test indicated no statistical difference 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: October 12, 1998.
Harvested: June 18, 1999.
Seeding Rate: 5 lb/acre in 7" rows.
Soil Type: Waynesboro loam.
Soil Test: P = Very High, K = Very High, and pH = 6.3.
Fertilization: Preplant:  50 lb N/acre.
Topdress:  100 lb N/acre.
Management: Moldboard plowed and rototilled; Treflan used for weed control.

1.  Yields calculated as 50 lb/bu at 8.5% moisture.
2.  Lodging rating: 1.0 = all plants erect to 5.0 = over 80% of plants down.
3.  C.V. = 8.7%, and df for EMS = 57.
4.  The F-test indicated no statistical difference 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).
