 YLD= Avg. Yield @ 13% moistureMS= 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: Calloway KY, Coffee, Dyer, Fulton KY, Gibson, Hickman, Jefferson, Lake, Madison, Weakley*Treated plots sprayed with Quadris TOP SBX @ 7 oz./Acre + 0.25% Induce @ R3 growth stage. RECM varieties planted May 31 and JAX planted May 23LOW, 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 locationDisease ratings at RECM: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 38% with an average of 13%;  Target spot ranged from 0 – 16% with an average of 11%.Disease ratings at JAX: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 4 – 31% with an average of 18%; Target spot ranged from 15 – 25% with an average of 19%; other diseases were not rated or noted at this location for this maturity groupDisease ratings & yield data compiled by Dr. Heather Kelly from replicated plots at the Research and Education Center at Milan and on-farm location in Jackson.County data provided by Ryan Blair, Ext.
