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.  Rating:  1 = no shattering to 5 = over 80% shattered.
5.  C.V. = 9.0%, and df for EMS = 26.
Bolding indicates entries yielding equal to highest yielding entry within a column based on Fisher's protected LSD
