Wheat plots were planted at four seeding rates and replicated three times. Individual plots were 60 ft. wide and 550 ft. long.
|50 lbs/A||85.6 bu./A|
|75 lbs/A||86.7 bu./A|
|100 lbs/A||86.9 bu./A|
|125 lbs/A||86.1 bu./A|
There were no significant differences among the treatment averages at the 0.05 (lsd 7.52 bu/A) and the 0.20 (lsd 4.42 bu/A) levels of probability. Coefficient of variation equaled 16.4%.
