1.  Rated as percent of foliage damaged by low temperature.
2.  C.V. = 10.1%, and df for EMS = 78.
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).
Planted: November 22, 2002.
Seeding Rate: 50 lb/acre broadcast.

Soil Test: P = High, K = High, and pH = 6.1.
Fertilization: Preplant: 50 lb N, 50 lb P2O5, and 75 lb K2O/acre.
Topdress: 50 lb N/acre after 1st and 2nd harvests.
Management: Moldboard plowed and disked.
Previous Crop: Canola.
