**Hybrids were compared to the average of three standards – NK G4066, HLS021 and ExAlt. This average was assigned a value of 100. The average yield of the standards at Armstrong was 19.4 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, ExAlt yielded 19% more than the average (19.1 t/ha) of the standard hybrids for the number of test-years indicated (3).

****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 (2001, 2002, 2004).
