  • If a trait appears inside parentheses i.e. (RR/CB), then it is not part of the hybrid name. For a full description of abbreviated biotech traits, see table 28.

†All yields are adjusted to 15.5% moisture.

‡ Three additional locations were planted but discarded.

– Milan non-irrigated: Drought at a crucial period during pollination caused differential yield losses that were likely influenced by hybrid  flowering date (C.V. = 19%, mean = 116 bu/a).

– Ames Plantation: Heavy flooding caused poor germination and uneven stands. Late replant (May 30) resulted in poor yield and high within test variation (C.V. = 52%, mean = 68 bu/a).

– AgriCenter International: Heavy flooding caused poor germination and uneven stands (not harvested).
