*  Triticale variety.
1.  Rated as percent of foliage damaged by low temperature.
2.  C.V. = 7.0%, and df for EMS = 33.
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).
