Table 7-b. Highland Rim (Springfield) Yield and Feed Quality Characteristics

Table 7-b. By location mean dry weight yield and feed quality characteristics of eight corn hybrids evaluated for silage in small plot replicated trials at the Highland Rim AgResearch and Education Center in Springfield, Tennessee during 2021. Analysis included hybrid performance across a 1 yr (2021), 2 yr (2020-2021) and 3 yr (2019-2021) period.

* Hybrids marked with an asterisk were in the top-performing “A” group for yield across locations within two (**) or three (***) consecutive years of the previous three-year evaluation period.
† For a full description of abbreviated biotech traits, see table 10.
‡ Hybrids that have any MS letter in common, within a column, are not significantly different at the 5% level of probability using a least significant difference (LSD) mean separation test.
¶ Nutritive content values were calculated on a 100% dry matter (DM) basis.
