*  Triticale variety.
1.  C.V. = 6.7%, and df for EMS = 30.
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 23, 2002.
Seeding Rate: 27 seed/foot in 7" rows.
Soil Type: Dothan loamy fine sand.
Soil Test: P = High, K = High, and pH = 6.3.
Fertilization: Preplant: 40 lb N, 0 lb P2O5, and 0 lb K2O/acre,
plus 50 lb N/acre on December 3 and 16, 2002.
Topdress: 50 lb N/acre after 1st and 3rd harvests.
Management: Moldboard plowed and rototilled.
Previous Crop: Peanuts.
