1 To convert lbs/acre to t/ha divide by 893.
2 Maturity is 3 year average. Maturity rating is affected by planting date and area where variety is being grown. Varieties are rated as mature when 95% of the pods are ripe. Normally, 3-10 additional drying days are needed before the crop is dry enough for combining.
3 LSD (0.05) - the LSD is a measure of variability within the trial. There is a ninety five percent probability that yields that differ by an amount greater than the LSD are different. Yields that differ by an amount less or equal to the LSD should be considered the same.
4 No sufficient data was generated in 2021 for long season locations.

1 R = Resistant, S = Susceptible, NA = Not Available
2 Anthracose ratings, the predominant race found now in Ontario is Race 73. Race 17 (binary system) is equivalent to the Alpha race, race 23 (binary system) is equivalent to the Delta race.
3 To convert 100 seed weight (g) to seeds per pound divide 45,400 by seed weight. Example: 45,400 / 63 gm = 720 seeds/lb
4 A variety's harvestability is based on a scale of 1-5, where 1 = upright plant type, standing erect with good bottom pod height and 5 = more prostrate plant type or plants that are not erect, with poor bottom pod height.

1 To convert lbs/acre to t/ha divide by 893.
2 Days to Maturity is 3 year average for St Thomas Station. Maturity rating is affected by planting date and area where variety is being grown. Varieties are rated as mature when 95% of the pods are ripe. Normally, 3-10 additional drying days are needed before the crop is dry enough for combining.
3 To convert 100 Seed weight (g) to seeds per pound divide 45,400 by seed weight. Example: 45,400 / 63 gm = 720 seeds/lb
4 LSD (0.05) - the LSD is a measure of variability within the trial. There is a ninety five percent probability that yields that differ by an amount greater than the LSD are different. Yields that differ by an amount less or equal to the LSD should be considered the same.

2 Anthracose ratings, the predominant race found now in Ontario is Race 73. Race 17 (binary system) is equivalent to the Alpha race, race 23 (binary system) is equivalent to the Delta race.
3 To convert 100 seed weight (g) to seeds per pound divide 45,400 by seed weight. Example: 45,400 / 63 gm = 720 seeds/lb
4 A variety's harvestability is based on a scale of 1-5, where 1 = upright plant type, standing erect with good bottom pod height and 5 = more prostrate plant type or plants that are not erect, with poor bottom pod height.
