1.  C.V. = 4.5%, and df for EMS = 72.
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).
