1.  Yields calculated at 13% moisture.
2.  The F-test indicated no statistical differences at the alpha = .10 probability level; therefore, a LSD value was not
     calculated.
Bolding within each test denotes entries with yields equal to the highest yielding entry based on Fisher's
protected LSD (P = 0.10).
