*  NOTE:  The southeastern states endured a very wet fall caused by two tropical storms and one hurricane.  Excessive
   rainfall along with persistent cloudy, drizzly conditions delayed soybean harvest, thus severely impacting soybean quality
   and maturity to degree that the data is not included in this final report and will not be used in the long term soybean quality
   and maturity averages.
1.  Yields calculated at 13% moisture.
2.  Lodging rating:  Rated 1 (all plants erect) to 5 (over 80% of plants down).
3.  Seed quality rating:  Rated 1 (very good) to 5 (very poor).
4.  Shattering rating:  Rated 1 (no shattering) to 5 (>50% pods shattered).
5.  CV = 16.9% and df for EMS = 46.
6.  The F-test indicated no statistical differences at the alpha = .10 probability level; therefore, a LSD value was not
     calculated.
7.  CV = 17.9% and df for EMS = 50.
Bolding within each test denotes entries with yields equal to the highest yielding entry based on Fisher's
protected LSD (P = 0.10).
Planted: May 15, 2002.
Harvested: Maturity Group V - November 13, 2002.
Maturity Group VI - November 14, 2002.
Seeding Rate: Ten seeds per foot in 30" rows.
Soil Type: Waynesboro loam.
Soil Test: P = Very High, K = High, and pH = 6.6.
Fertilization: 30 lb N, 60 lb P2O5, and 90 lb K2O/acre.
Previous Crop: Corn.
Management: Subsoiled, moldboard plowed, disked, and rototilled; Lasso, Canopy XL, and one cultivation used for
weed control; irrigated 10.0 inches.
Test conducted by P. A. Rose, G. Rawls, and J. Stubbs.
