1.  C.V. = 8.5%, and df for EMS = 45.
2.  The F-test indicated no statistical difference at the alpha = 0.10 probability level; therefore a
     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: October 4, 2001.
Seeding Rate: 27 seed/foot in 7" rows.
Soil Type: Pacolet coarse sandy loam.
Soil Test: P = medium, K = High, and pH = 6.1.
Fertilization: Preplant: 49 lb N, 98 lb P2O5, and 147 lb K2O/acre.
Topdress: 50 lb N/acre after 1st, 2nd, and 3rd harvests.
Management: Chisel plowed, disked and rototilled; Harmony Extra used for weed control.
Previous Crop: Sorghum.
