YLD= Avg. Yield @ 15% moisture

MS= Varieties that have any MS letter in common are not statistically different in yield at the 5% level of probability.

Varieties denoted with an asterisks (*) or (**) etc. were in the top performing group for consecutive years.

County locations include: Dyer, Gibson, Madison

*Treated plots sprayed with Quadris TOP SBX @ 7 oz./Acre + 0.25% Induce @ R3 growth stage. RECM varieties planted June 5 and JAX planted June 14.

LOW, MOD, and HIGH is a relative ranking of disease severity at each location. Other diseases noted: SC=Stem Canker, CLB=Cercospora Leaf Blight, SDS=Sudden Death Syndrome;  ‘ – ‘ indicate variety was not tested at that location

Disease ratings at RECM: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 31% with an average of 6% and Target spot ranged from 0 – 2% with an average of 1%.

Disease ratings at JAX: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 56% with an average of 6% and Target spot ranged from 0 – 4% with an average of 1%.

Disease ratings & yield data compiled by Dr. Heather Kelly from replicated plots at the Research and Education Center at Milan and on-farm location in Jackson.
