At this location, four treatments, including BWIP showed significant effects of treatment (F = 48.654, df 1,67, an untreated check, were arranged in an RCB design with four P < 0.001), date (F = 22.001, df 4,67, P < 0.001), and their inter- replicates per treatment. All plots were 0.02 acres and planted on action (F = 11.486, df 4,67, P < 0.001) Coragen, Blackhawk, and 30 Apr 2019. Each plot consisted of four rows with ca. 25 plants.
