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 8, and harvested Oct 2.

JAX varieteis planted May 21, sprayed July 24, and harvested Sept. 24.

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
