Oat Grain Performance, 2001-2002
Oat  varieties were planted at this location in Fall 2001.  However, extensive
cold damage caused very low yields and considerable variation in performance
among plots within the test.  After careful analysis and review of this data, it is
the opinion of the editors that the results of this trial may not accurately reflect
the performance potential of all test entries.  Since this data could be
misleading if used in making decisions concerning variety selection, we have
chosen not to present them in this publication.
