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. = 9.5%, 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).
