There was no one variety that was significantly higher in yield with twin over single rows. However when you compared all the varieties together they showed a significantly higher yield with twin rows over single. The twin rows had a lsd of 247
lb/ac meaning the twin rows were significantly higher in yield than the single rows across all varieties tested. The Ga 12V was the highest yielding variety probably due to the fact that we had so much rain during the season creating lots of disease pressure. The rains continued into harvest season which delayed harvest timing for many varieties giving Ga 12V a better opportunity to stand out due to the fact it is a slightly longer season variety than the others.
Even though Ga 16HO didn't show any significant differences in twin row spacings or seeding rates it did have a significantly higher yield of 4,153 lb/ac than the Tuf 511 with the same seeding rate and twin spacing yielding 2,817 lb/ac.
