N.B. Original planting date for this trial was 12/10/16. The decision was made to replant 746B3F, 748B3F and 754B3F on 31/10/16, due to poor plant stand. 714B3F was not replanted and the original stand was kept.
N.B. Commercial turnout not available for this trial due to an issue with module weights prior to ginning
