† Yields have been adjusted to 13% moisture.

‡ Moisture at harvest.

  • Planting date.

Each variety was evaluated in a large strip-plot at each location, thus each county test was considered as one replication of the test in calculating the

average yield and in conducting the statistical analysis to determine significant differences (MS).

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

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