1.  C.V. = 6.8%, and df for EMS = 45.
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).
