Abstract: The Summary Tables present grain yields averaged across sites with significant differences between entries, for each of the five to six environments. Data on agronomic performance such as anthesis date, plant and ear height, ear position, root and stem lodging, husk cover, ear rot, leaf diseases, grain weevil and stem borer damage, grain texture and grain moisture were averaged across all sites that provided results with significant differences between entries. If no data are presented for these traits, no trial data demonstrating significant differences for these traits was available.
