*  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 = 10.8% 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 = 11.0% and df for EMS = 50.
8.  CV = 8.7% and df for EMS = 62.
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 1, 2002.
Maturity Group VI - November 1, 2002.
Maturity Groups VII & VIII - November 26, 2002.
Seeding Rate: Ten seeds per foot in 30" rows.
Soil Type: Greenville sandy loam.
Soil Test: P = Medium, K = Medium, and pH = 6.7.
Fertilization: 25 lb N, 100 lb P2O5, and 100 lb K2O/acre.
Previous Crop: Cotton.
Management: Subsoiled and rototilled; Treflan, Lasso, FirstRate, and one cultivation used for weed control;
Karate used for insect control; irrigated 10.0 inches.
Test conducted by A. E. Coy, M. D. Pippin, and R. R. Pines.
