star 1 star 2 = highly significant yield advantage to Pioneer

star 1 = significant yield advantage to Pioneer

NS = not significant

CA = commercially acceptable

1 Positive HM differences means the bolded hybrid was drier at harvest, negative HM differences mean it was wetter.

2 A positive yield advantage means the bolded hybrid produced more yield, a negative yield advantage means it produced less.
