2 Yield, Days to Maturity and Seed weight are 3 year averages. 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 R = Resistant, S = Susceptible, NA = Not Available
