1.  C.V. = 7.5%, and df for EMS = 69.
2.  C.V. = 7.9%, and df for EMS = 69.
3.  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).
