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 21, sprayed Aug 19, and harvested Oct 23.

JAX varieties planted May 28, sprayed Aug 13, and harvested Oct 3.


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 – 19% with an average of 8% and Target spot was only reported on Asgrow 53X0.

Disease ratings at JAX: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 17% with an average of 6% and Target spot was only observed on Asgrow 53X0 and SDS disease index ranged from 0 – 20, with an average of 2 disease index.
