Table 4. Early-season yield, agronomic, and quality data across REC locations

Table 4-a. Mean yield and agronomic traits of 27 early-season (<114 DAP) corn hybrids evaluated in small plot replicated trials at eight AgResearch and Education Center locations in Tennessee during 2021. Analysis included hybrid performance over a 1 yr (2021), 2 yr (2020-2021), and 3 yr (2019-2021) period.

Hybrids that have any MS letter in common are not significantly different at the 5% level of probability. * Asterisks after a hybrid name indicate the number of preceding consecutive years in the top-performing “A” group. ‡ For a full description of abbreviated biotech traits, see table 18. § All yields are adjusted to 15.5% moisture. ¶ Lodging values do not typically follow a normal distribution, therefore statistical tests to compute LSD were not performed and only mean values are reported. Values highlighted in light orange are above average for a given trait, MS letters highlighted in dark orange are in the “A group”, indicating no statistical difference from the top-performing variety, for a given trait.     Table 4-b.
