This average was assigned a value of 100. The average yield of the standards at Agassiz was 16.5 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, N24-V8 yielded 6% more than the average (17.1 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 Agassiz (2004-2008).
