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, Fayette, Franklin, Gibson, Henry, Madison

*Treated plots sprayed with Quadris TOP SBX @ 7 oz./Acre + 0.25% Induce @ R3 growth stage. RECM varieties planted June 5, JAX planted June 14, and WTREC planted after wheat 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 – 1.8% with an average of 0.2%; Target spot ranged from 0 – 15% with an average of 3%.

Disease ratings at JAX: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 1% with an average of 0.1%; Target spot ranged from 0 – 25% with an average of 5%.

Disease ratings at WTREC: Disease pressure was too low (<5%) at this location to take ratings.

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