YLD= Avg. Yield @ 13% 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.
*Treated plots sprayed with Quadris TOP SBX @ 7 oz./Acre + 0.25% Induce @ R3 growth stage.
RECM varieties planted May 28, sprayed Aug 19, and harvested Oct 23.
JAX varieties planted May 21, sprayed Aug 8, and harvested Oct 3.
WTREC varieties planted after wheat June 17, sprayed Aug 28, and harvested Nov 6.
LOW, MOD, and HIGH is a relative ranking of disease severity at each location. Other diseases noted: SDS=Sudden Death Syndrome; ‘ – ‘ indicate variety was not tested at that location
Disease ratings at RECM: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 28% with an average of 4%; Target spot ranged from 0 – 20% with an average of 2%.
Disease ratings at JAX: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 16% with an average of 2%; Sudden Death Syndrome disease index ranged from 0 – 21 with an average of 6 disease index.
Disease ratings at WTREC: Disease pressure was too low (<5%) at this location to take ratings, some yield data were affected by sandy soils and the majority of those data points were discarded.
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.
