1.  Whole plant yields taken at soft dough stage of development.
2.  Rated as percent of stand survival.
3.  C.V. = 19.4%, and df for EMS = 42.
4.  The F-test indicated no statistical difference at the alpha = 0.1 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).
