1.  C.V. = 6.2%, and df for EMS = 96.
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 2, 2001.
Seeding Rate: 50 lb/acre in 7" rows.
