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.   *Treated plots sprayed with Quadris TOP SBX @ 7 oz./Acre + 0.25% Induce @ R3 growth stage. RECM varieties planted June 3, sprayed Aug 12, and harvested Nov 3. JAX varieties planted June 2, sprayed Aug 10, and harvested Oct 22.   LOW, MOD, and HIGH is a relative ranking of disease severity at each location. Other diseases noted: SBS=Septoria brown spot (high levels in non-treated plots), CLB=Cercospora Leaf Blight, SDS=Sudden Death Syndrome, SC=Stem Canker Disease ratings at RECM: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 15% with an average of 6% and Target spot ranged from 0 – 2% with an average of 0.5%. Disease ratings at JAX: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 29% with an average of 7% and Target spot ranged from 0 – 15% with an average of 3%.   Disease ratings & yield data compiled by Dr. Heather Kelly & Alyson Horner from replicated plots at the Research and Education Center at Milan and on-farm location in Jackson. County data provided by Ryan Blair, Ext. Area Specialist, and the extension agents.
