*  Triticale variety.
1.  Rated as percent of foliage damaged by low temperature.
2.  C.V. = 7.5%, and df for EMS = 30.
3.  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: November 21, 2002.
Seeding Rate: 27 seed/foot in 7" rows.
