1 Yields calculated as 50 lb/bu at 8.5% moisture.
2 Expressed as a percentage of the total fatty acids
3 Lodging rating: 1.0 = all plants erect to 5.0 = over 80% of plants down.
4 C.V. = 12.6%, and df for EMS = 51.
5 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).
