This average was assigned a value of 100. The average yield of the standard at Armstrong was 18.3 tonnes of dry matter per hectare. ***The relative yield must be compared to the standard dry matter yield shown in the last column. For example, NK N25N-GT yielded 7% (Relative Yield of 107%) more than the average (19.1 t/ha) of the standard hybrids for the number of test-years indicated (2). ****The number of years in which the hybrid was tested (during the last five) multiplied by the number of locations where it was tested. Trial conducted at Armstrong (2004, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009).
