1.  Yields calculated as 50 lb/bu at 8.5% moisture.
2.  Expressed as a percentage of the total fatty acids from open pollinated seeds.
3.  Lodging rating:  1.0 = all plants erect to 5.0 = over 80% of plants down.
4.  C.V. = 7.7%, and df for EMS = 30.
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).
