Chemical Tolerance is based on findings by the Dept of Crop Sciences Uni of Illinois USA where Tol = a rating between no or limited apparent injury from the application of the herbicide. Tolerance is defined as the ability of a plant variety to endure abiotic stress without serious consequences for growth, appearance or yield.  A tolerant plant will usually show fewer symptoms than sensitive plants when grown under similar conditions of abiotic stress. 
Disease ratings are as defined by ISF Position Paper May 2005 refer to:www.worldseed.org for more information
HR: High / Standard Resistance: Describes plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pressure when compared to susceptible varieties.  HR varieties may exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pest or pathogen pressure. 
IR: Intermediate / Moderate Resistance: Describes plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to HR varieties.  IR varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pest or pathogen pressure. 
SU: Susceptibility is the inability of a variety to restrict the growth and development of a specified pest or pathogen.
Notes regarding Rust strains: Common rust races identified in 2001in USA were not controlled by any of the single genes Rp1-d, Rp1-e, Rp1-g, or Rp1-i. The effectiveness of rust genes in sweet corn will be determined by the variation of common rust races in each growing area.
