Planting Date: May 18, 2009 Date Harvested: October 19   Machine harvested.
a - CL = Clearfield. DM, DMR - Downy Mildew resistance.
b - NS designates the NuSun Hybrids. HO = High oleic. Trad=Traditional.                                          
c - Seed oil content determined on an NMR machine and adjusted to 10% moisture.                 
    NuSun and High Oleic oils also adjusted for oil type.                                                     
d - Seed moisture taken at harvest.                                                             
Comments: Heads from one of the middle rows (harvested row) were netted                            
          after seed set and no bird damage occurred.                                           
          Rep 4 was abandoned because of its proximity to a single row shelter 
          belt which caused highly variable agronomic data within that 
          replication, particularly for yield.
