* The combined average yield of the standard hybrids at Agassiz and Chilliwack was 16.3 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, 37M34 yielded 17% more than the average (16.0 t/ha) of the standard hybrids for the number of test-years indicated (4).
*** The number of years in which the hybrid was tested (during the last five) multiplied by the number of locations where it was tested.
