* The combined average yield of the standard hybrids at Abbotsford and Saanich was 16.9 tonnes of dry matter per hectare. This average was given a value of 100.
** The relative yield must be compared to the standard dry matter yield shown in the last column. For example, HL2428 yielded 15% more than the average (17.7 t/ha) of the standard hybrids for the number of test-years indicated (10).
*** The number of years in which the hybrid was tested (during the last five) multiplied by the number of locations where it was tested.
