1.  Yields calculated as 32 pounds per bushel at 12.5% moisture.
2.  C.V. = 13.7%, and df for EMS = 57.
3.  The F-test indicated no statistical difference at the alpha = 0.1 probability level; therefore, an 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).
