a Superscripts indicate ranking at that location.
b Significant (P <0.01 or 0.05) variety X location interaction for a trait indicates that means averaged over locations
  in above table may not indicate within location performance.  Therefore, use means over locations to compare
  varietal performance with caution.  *, ** = significant at P <0.05 or 0.01, respectively.
Bolding indicates entries not significantly different from highest yielding entry based on Fisher's protected LSD
