1. Yields calculated as 48 pounds per bushel at 12.0% moisture.
2. Percentage on flag leaves.
3. C.V. = 7.2%, and df for EMS = 18.
4. The F-test indicated no statistical difference at the alpha = .10 probability level; therefore, an LSD value was not calculated.
Bolding indicates entries yielding equal to highest yielding entry within a column based on Fisher's protected LSD (P = 0.10).
Planted: November 20, 1997.
Harvested: May 28, 1998.
Seeding Rate: 14 seeds per foot in 7" rows.
Soil Type: Greenville sandy clay loam.
Soil Test: P = Low, K = High, and pH = 6.1.
Fertilization: Preplant: 9 lb N, 54 lb P2O5, and 27 lb K2O/acre.
Topdress: 40 lb N/acre on February 10 and February 25, 1998.
Management: Subsoiled and rototilled.
Previous Crop: Peanut.
