1.  Yields calculated at 56 pounds per bushel at 13.0% moisture.
2.  Tifton.
3.  Griffin.
4.  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).
