1.  Yields calculated as 60 pounds per bushel at 13.5% moisture.
2.  C.V. = 6.0%, and df for EMS = 123.
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).
