1.  Rated as percent of foliage damaged by low temperature.
2.  C.V. = 16.8%, and df for EMS = 72.
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: October 9, 2002.
Seeding Rate: 50 lb/acre in 7" rows.
Soil Type: Pacolet sandy clay loam.
Soil Test: P = Low, K = High, and pH = 6.4.
Fertilization: Preplant: 49 lb N, 98 lb P2O5, and 147 lb K2O/acre.
Topdress: 50 lb N/acre on December 1, 2002 and 50 lb N/acre after 1st and
2nd harvests.
Management: Chisel plowed, disked, and minitilled.
Previous Crop: Fallow.
